How do I request a tutor?
Students who wish to have a tutor should complete and sign a Tutor Request Form and return it to the Welcome Center.
Tutoring policies are on the back of the Tutor Request Form, which includes an attendance policy for both students and tutors, with absences discouraged except for emergency situations. Cell phone use is not permitted in the tutoring rooms.
If a student has special learning needs or challenges, such as a learning disability, it is his or her responsibility to let the tutor know this at the beginning of the tutoring assignment.

Who are the Peer Tutors?
Students who serve as tutors have successfully completed the courses for which they provide tutoring and receive recommendations from their instructor. Tutors must show academic proficiency in the course and have good interpersonal communication skills. Tutors are expected to maintain confidentiality, work well with peers and faculty and be prompt for tutoring sessions. Tutors complete employment forms and tutoring reports and are paid through the Student Success Center. The number of tutors available per semester varies.
How can I apply to be a tutor?
Typically, our tutors have taken a class at RCC and gotten an “A” or a “B” in it before they are hired to be a tutor for that class. Occasionally, we have tutors who have completed those classes at other colleges or universities. We verify their qualifications before they are hired. Please see the tutor coordinator for more information.
