Becoming a peer tutor at Laney

We’re hiring Laney students to be peer tutors for Fall 2021!

Why become a tutor?

TRANSFER
Our tutors have tremendous success getting into their first-choice universities
BECOME A PROFESSIONAL
All tutors receive training in tutoring techniques, and many tutors find that tutoring
opens the door to more professional work
A FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE
Tutors can fit their work around their class schedules.
BUILD SKILLS
Helping other students through their learning processes will challenge you to find
new ways to explain and conceptualize your discipline
FEEL GOOD
Students are appreciative of your help, and understanding if you don’t know the
answer to every question. Show them how to look it up!
MAKE SOME EXTRA MONEY
The job pays $14.36 an hour, and most tutors start out working 3-4 hours a week,
though you can work up to 20 hours/week if your availability permits.

What steps should I take if I am interested?

1. Be enrolled in at least one unit at Peralta and have a “B” or better in the subject you want to tutor. (Maybe it’s not even the subject you are taking in this
class.)
2. Get a recommendation from your professor. (He or she can email ilatta@peralta.edu)
3. Email the tutor coordinator to set up an appointment for an informal interview and to answer any questions you have about the opportunity: Ian Latta ilatta@peralta.edu
