Tutor Training

Become a Peer Tutor

As the old adage states, "Experience is the best teacher." This especially holds true for tutoring. Sheer practical experience gives tutors many of the tools that they need to effectively provide academic support to their peers.

Peer Tutors

Peer Tutors are Anoka-Ramsey students who excel in their course work and possess skills and qualities that make them valuable tutors. In addition, peer tutors have been recommended by Anoka-Ramsey faculty as demonstrating superior subject knowledge.

Your success in a recent class may be valuable to students who will take that same class in the future. If you feel like you would enjoy tutoring your peers in a subject where you've been particularly successful, please follow the recommendations for becoming a peer tutor.

Becoming a Peer Tutor

If you would like to become a peer tutor, there are several ways to begin the process:

  • One way to become a peer tutor is to receive a recommendation from an instructor. You may speak with an instructor in the field of study that you would like to tutor.
  • You may also contact the Academic Support Center (ASC) or the Math Skills Center (MSC) to learn more about peer tutoring.
  • If you are recommended by a professor to become a peer tutor, all tutors must complete the necessary peer tutor training and the required face-to-face training sessions on your campus.
