Academic Learning Center (ALC)


Tutor Training

The Academic Learning Center offers training for tutors in all disciplines across campus.

We require 10 hours of training. A two-hour orientation session covers roles, rights and responsibilities.

Tutors choose how they will complete the remaining eight hours of training.

Four online modules:
  • Setting goals and planning
  • Learning styles
  • Study skills
  • Memory and the brain
A selection of one-hour workshops in topics such as:
  • Working with students with disabilities
  • Effective communication skills
  • Preparing for cumulative exams

After orientation, tutors can access the Tutor Training D2L Brightspace site with handouts and other information.

Our program earned College Reading and Learning Association certification in 2011.
