Student Staff

The Claude J. Clark Learning Center would not function without its large student staff.

We have over one hundred student tutors working with us every semester. Student tutors have already shown their academic success in the courses they tutor and by maintaining a 2.75 GPA or higher.  In addition, all tutors must complete either ENG 390 Training for Writing Tutors (3 credits) or TTR101 Tutor Training Seminar (1 credit). Both courses provide the necessary foundation in the theory and practice of tutoring and count towards College Reading and Learning Association certification.

While we would love to sing the praises of all of our wonderful tutors, there simply is not enough space. Each month our News & Events site gives kudos to the achievements of our tutors and shines the spotlight on one tutor.

Interested in Being a Student Tutor?

To find out more on what it's like to be a tutor stop by the Center and meet with Karin or Tom or check out our posted Information For Tutors .

Our efforts are also supported by seven work study students, who are our Desk Attendants. Their duties include monitoring the front desk; completing data entry into the BANNER system; answering telephone calls; assisting with bulletin board design and maintenance; and other clerical duties as designated by the Learning Center professional staff.

Our News & Events site also recognizes the achievements of our Desk Attendants.
