Tutor Hiring Information

Becoming a Tutor

Thank you for your interest in tutoring at SBCC. There are two types of tutors: Drop-in (General) and Gateway.

Drop-in (General) tutors work with a department and have prearranged drop-in tutoring hours. All students needing help in a specific subject visit that tutor during his/her tutoring hours.

Gateway tutors work with a specific instructor and class. Instructors screen and select their Gateway Tutors the majority of which are former students of that class. You can visit the SBCC web site online class schedule at sbcc.edu/classes and look at the online class schedule for the subjects that you feel competent to tutor. To see if a Gateway instructor would like to hire you as a tutor, you would need to contact the instructor directly. Instructor contact information can be found online using the search function.

If a department tutor supervisor or Gateway instructor wants to hire you, the next step would be to begin the hiring process.  

Please note that tutors are hired within the first two weeks of the semester.

Tutors will not be approved to work until the hiring process is complete. 

 


Hiring Process

All tutors are screened and selected by Instructors or Tutor Supervisors. 

After being selected, at the beginning of each semester all new and returning tutors will need to submit a Tutor Semester Assignment Form.

After completing the Tutor Semester Assignment Form, continue with the next steps in the process (based on whether you are a new or returning tutor.
