Duties & Responsibilities:

A tutor's primary responsibility is to assist students in learning and understanding course material within the tutor's content area, with the goal of helping the student become an independent and self-reliant learner. A tutor is expected to perform duties face-to-face and remotely.

Tutors most commonly work with individual students, but should be prepared to work with small groups of students as well. Tutors are not instructors and cannot be left alone in a classroom with students without direction from Tutoring Center management.
All tutors are evaluated at minimum once each semester on multiple things including: length of employment, CRLA level, level of education or training, number of subjects able to tutor, and whether the tutor complies with the Tutoring Center and San Juan College policies, procedures, and guidelines.
Tutors are evaluated as an employee, as a tutor, as a role model, and using the San Juan College values (iCare).

Tutors should also be willing and able to refer students to appropriate services on campus. All tutors are expected to attend all trainings (Friday afternoons from 1:00-3:00). Tutors must track and submit work time, time spent tutoring, and tutoring session notes.

Tutoring is professional work, and tutors are expected to apply and improve in the professional skills addressed in training. Tutors must dress appropriately for a professional position. Tutors must always communicate respectfully, professionally, and promptly with clients, faculty, and staff.

Perform reasonable related duties as assigned.
