Tutoring - Center for Academic Excellence

Make a difference ....be a Tutor!

What does it mean to tutor?
Whether you've tutored for years or this is your first time, you've probably thought about that question. Consider the following:

Tutoring is:

  • A Satisfying Job
  • An Opportunity for Leadership
  • Serving Others
  • Skill Building
  • A Chance to Learn About Yourself

Characteristics of a Tutor:

  • Someone who models to others
  • Someone who is present during tutoring sessions
  • Someone who communicates boundaries
  • Someone who is not afraid to ask for help when needed

Tutoring is NOT about:

  • Satisfying your desire to be needed
  • Not showing up
  • Knowing all the Answers
  • Giving the answers
  • Doing students' work for them
