Information for Tutors

Working as a peer tutor is a great experience: you gain confidence, improve your communication skills, deepen your understanding of the subject you tutor, have fun and make great friends in the process! Alumni have told us that their experience as SSC tutors has prepared them to be successful at their transfer universities and careers.

Whether you are a De Anza student interested in becoming a tutor or a new or returning tutor with questions about training, time sheets, or resources, you can find the information you need here.
