Meet the Tutors

Become a Peer Tutor

Students interested in becoming peer tutors should contact Angela Dunlap at 815-224-0479 or angela_dunlap@ivcc.edu.

In order to be a course-specific tutor, you must meet these criteria:

  1. You must have earned a "B" or better in the subject you wish to tutor.
  2. An instructor must recommend you or verify your ability to tutor the subject.
  3. You must complete an interview and training process.

In order to be a writing tutor, you must meet these criteria:

  1. Coursework—Writing Center tutors should have completed ENG 1001 and ENG 1002 with a grade of A. An applicant may be considered with a grade of B in ENG 1001. Applicants should also have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0; a GPA of 3.5 or above is preferred.
  2. Instructor Recommendation—The coordinator will request a recommendation from each English instructor an applicant has had for an English or Literature course. Instructors are asked about the applicants’ attendance, work ethic, ability to articulate subject matter, understanding of class material, and ability to relate to others. Applicants do not need to request these recommendations, but it does not hurt to talk to your instructors to make sure they are supportive of your application.

Tutors are paid student workers. Therefore, if you are looking for a little extra money and would like the experience of helping others, think of becoming a peer tutor!
