Apply to be a tutor at the Learning Support Center
Now hiring tutors who are excited about online tutoring for Spring 2021!
We are eager to receive applications from students interested in working as tutors for Spring 2021! We will be tutoring students online-only, and we are looking for tutors who are interested in and excited about tutoring online. For a brief overview of our online tutoring, please click on the links to the right for "Ask a Tutor" and "Ask a Tutor: Live," as well as "eTutoring."
If you think you would enjoy breaking down complex issues into smaller steps, connecting with new people, and helping others as a part of a supportive, academic-minded environment, then being a tutor is a great option for you! You will be working both with your fellow students as a tutor and with other students as your tutor coworkers, backing each other up and providing support in our online staff chats.
Subjects We Currently Need Tutors For
We always accept applications year-round for the following subjects, though we tend to do much of our hiring before Fall quarter begins every year: math, writing, chemistry, biology, accounting, statistics, BSTEC, CIS, computer science, physics, and more.
At the moment, however, we are looking in particular for tutors who can help with the following subjects:
- Biology - any course
- Accounting - QuickBooks (Acct 216)
- Statistics (Math 146)
- Business Precalculus (Math 140)
- Business Calculus (Math 148)
To qualify as a tutor in our program, you must:
- Have a 3.6 in the subject(s) to be tutored,
- Be an Edmonds College student enrolled in at least 6 units or a graduate,
- Interview with the Learning Support Center Director and/or Assistant Director, and
- Have a Social Security Number or be eligible to get one.
- (Optional and helpful, but not mandatory: Have an instructor make a brief recommendation for each subject you wish to tutor.)
The advantages of being an Edmonds College tutor are that you:
- Help others achieve their academic goals with your guidance;
- Reinforce your knowledge of course content, which will help you as you advance in your college career;
- Improve your communication skills;
- Develop skills to work in a multicultural, diverse work environment;
- Learn effective teaching techniques;
- Get paid for learning and on-the-job training ($13.69 per hour);
- Build your work schedule around your classes; and
- Work at a convenient on-campus location (work will be all-online for Spring 2021)

What to Expect After You Apply
We hire on a rolling basis, which means that while we are always accepting applications, we may not always be actively hiring new tutors. Whether we reach out to you immediately after receiving your application or not will depend on our current staffing needs and the subjects you have said you can tutor.
Please do not expect to hear back right away. If we are looking to hire and your application fits some of our needed subjects, then you may receive an email inviting you to an interview. If you do not receive an email, this usually means we are keeping your application on file for later reference when we are hiring more tutors.
Please be patient, as this process can take some time for us to sort out, especially toward the beginnings and endings of quarters as we assess our schedule and staffing needs.
