About the Tutor Training Program:
LPC students who pass classes with an A or B and enjoy working with people are encouraged to be tutors. The Las Positas College Tutorial Center offers all LPC students free tutoring in many classes and is dedicated to students’ educational success; therefore, we train our peer tutors to do the best job possible. All tutors must take a training class at the beginning of their tutorial experience in order to know how to manage tutorial sessions, understand the ethics of tutoring, enhance communication and listening skills, work with each learning style and avoid common mistakes in tutoring. Tutor training is conducted through a variety of educational means to best meet the schedules and learning needs of the tutors. Advanced levels of training are available for those wishing to learn more about learning disabilities, leadership and innovative techniques. The training is designed to fulfill the College Reading and Learning Association’s certification requirements. Tutoring may be done for pay or college credit.
