Types of Tutoring

Several different types of tutoring are offered by the mathematics department

STEM Tutors

STEM tutors assist students on a drop in basis with content from all SBCC math courses, with an emphasis on calculus and precalculus topics. STEM tutors should have completed at least second semester calculus (Math 160 or equivalent.)

Statistics Tutors

Statistics tutors are paired with a Math 117 section, are expected to attend an assigned class section and are scheduled for general statistics tutoring hours in the Math Lab. Statistics tutors should be comfortable with algebra and introductory statistics (Math 117 or equivalent).

Gateway and PAL Tutors

Gateway or PAL tutors work with a specific class section and typically work both in and out of the classroom. They should have successfully completed the course(s) they are interested in tutoring.
