Tutoring at the Baker Center

Tutor

Tutoring at the Baker Center is done on a drop-in or appointment basis by peer (student) tutors, para-professional, and professional tutors. The tutors all function as guides and coaches; they facilitate learning and encourage students to become successful, independent learners. The center's tutors assist students with their understandings of course/subject specific content, study skills, writing skills, and basic skills (note-taking, time management, etc.).

Qualifications for Becoming a Peer Tutor

All tutors must provide faculty references, must maintain at least a 3.0 in content area, a 2.5 overall GPA and must be in good academic standing. We look for applicants strong in both content area and interpersonal skills. If you are interested, fill out an application electronically or print one off from a link below. Feel free to stop by the Baker Center to chat about the job. If you prefer, call to make an appointment: 607 844 8222, ext- 4416.
