The Skyline College Learning Center has long been a hub for developing future educators. Current faculty in several departments around campus got their start as peer tutors in The Learning Center before completing undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Effective December 1, 2013 the Skyline College Learning Center’s tutor training program became certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) through its international tutor training program certification process, as a Level I and Level II certified program. Level I (Certified Tutor) is awarded to tutors upon completion of the LSKL 110 Tutor Training course offered each fall and spring. Level II (Advanced Certified Tutor) is awarded to tutors after they have completed additional hours of supervised tutoring and training; each level additionally requires regular evaluations by faculty and Learning Center staff.
Skyline College tutors are now being recognized professionally for the great work they do each semester. This certification helps The Learning Center attract and retain quality tutors, helps tutors demonstrate their professionalism for employment and four-year transfer purposes, and demonstrates the credibility of the program to the Skyline College community. If you know a student who may be interested in tutoring or teaching, please send them to the The Learning Center or visit us on the web at www.skylinecollege.edu/learningcenter
