Can I hire a tutor to work with me one-on-one?
For your convenience, we've compiled a list of people that provide private tutoring and are available for you to hire if you choose. If you'd like a copy of this list, stop by LIB229 to pick one up or e-mail your request to tutoring@cgc.edu. Chandler- Gilbert Community College is not responsible in any way for any of the private tutors listed. The tutors have asked to be added to this list and take responsibility for their actions. Private tutoring sessions can in no circumstances take place in the Learning Center or on the CGCC campus. The tutors listed have not been screened for credentials or experience. Therefore, CGCC cannot guarantee the quality of tutoring. Pay rates and meeting places are coordinated between you and the private tutor you hire.

How can I become a tutor?
Working with other students in a helping role will provide you with some of the most valuable experience you could ever get during your college years.

The Learning Center is interested in math or science students who:
  • have a minimum grade of "B" in the course in which you wish to tutor;
  • know their subject matter well and are willing to learn more about it;
  • are able to communicate information clearly;
  • relate well with different personalities and cultures;
  • practice academic professionalism;
  • practice patience;
  • are able to participate in required tutor training sessions;
  • possess good listening and problem-solving skills.
If you possess these qualities, you may apply to become a tutor in the Learning Center. Please either pick up an application from the LC or print out an application and drop it off in Room LIB239R at the Pecos Campus. Our goal is to preserve the reputation of the Learning Center by ensuring we have the best tutors working with our students.
