Types of Tutoring
There are two different types of tutoring offered by the mathematics department
Lab tutors assist students on a drop in basis with content from all SBCC math courses. While lab tutors are not and should not be expected to be familiar with material in every course, a broad knowledge of mathematics including a solid foundation in algebra is expected.
Specific SBCC math classes are designated as Gateway classes (indicated by a G on the schedule of classes.) Gateway tutors work directly with the instructor of a Gateway class and may work with students in or out of the classroom. Gateway tutors will not necessarily need as broad a knowledge of mathematics as a lab tutor, since they will be working with specific material in their assigned classes.
Submit your applications as early as possible! We start work on the schedule for Spring in January, and the schedule for Fall in August.
If you expect to have changes in your availability at a later date, please write a note on your application. If you indicate an interest in Gateway or other mathematics tutoring positions on your application, it will be shared with Gateway instructors and other tutorial labs on campus. If there are no openings currently available, we will keep your application on file in case any additional openings become available. Scheduling depends on tutoring availability as well as budgetary constraints, positions are not guaranteed and lab hours may vary from semester to semester.
Learning Resources Center
The Cartwright Learning Resources Center provides many resources for tutors and also offers several workshops.
