Peer Tutoring

Peer tutoring is a free college service to help you succeed. Our tutors are top students who can help you understand course content and guide you in college study strategies. Tutors meet with you once a week, and help you on a one-to-one basis.

Fill out a request to receive tutoring, and stop by the library to sign up:

TBCC-Peer-Tutoring-Request-Form

For more information please contact the library.

Currently, we have tutors available in a wide variety of subjects

We are always accepting applications for new tutors.

I would encourage anyone who has accomplished a math class with a thorough understanding of the subject to sign up as a peer tutor.  It is very rewarding.  There is no feeling on earth like seeing the light bulb come on in someone’s face and have them say, “Chloe, it just clicked. I GET IT NOW.”  That means I did my job and they got what they needed. It gives a tremendous feeling of satisfaction and usefulness.

Do you want to help other students and develop your own leadership abilities? AND earn some extra money? Many tutors discover their natural teaching abilities while tutoring and decide to become teaching assistants, teachers, or professors. Others become nurses, translators, engineers, scientists, historians, librarians and other careers that make use of the skills they developed as a tutor.

Tutor Qualifications:

  • Visit the library and pick up an application
  • Have earned a B or higher in course(s) you wish to tutor
  • Have an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Be a registered TBCC student during the term you serve as a peer tutor
  • Have earned at least 30 credit hours
  • Ability to complete tutoring training
For current peer tutors

In order to provide you with the skills necessary to offer high quality peer tutoring, we request that all new peer tutors watch the following videos, and print off (or take a photo of) proof of completion.

  • “The Role of the Tutor”
  • “Tutee Study Skills: Note-Taking, Reading & Testing Strategies activities”
  • and then any 1 other video that seems interesting to you

These videos can all be accessed here. And compensation will be given for your time once proof of completion is given to the Tutoring Center Coordinator.

If you have any questions or issues with accessing the training, please contact the Tutoring Center Coordinator: masynphoenix@tillamookbaycc.edu
