Community Involvement Can Boost Student Success at Tri-C

Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C ®) is looking for community members to join its Community Volunteer Tutoring Program. Volunteers get the opportunity to give back to future generations, and students get the benefit of their knowledge and experience.

Tutors work one-on-one with students in all subject areas, but the greatest needs are in math and science. Volunteer tutors can meet with students at any of Tri-C’s campuses, and hours are flexible.

“Math tutoring has been a great experience for me,” said William Sullivan, a volunteer at the Eastern and Metropolitan campuses. “The need for tutoring is greater than I realized. This is a great way to undo some of the myths and fears about math for students.”

Deborah Simpson, director of the Learning Center at Eastern Campus, said the tutors not only provide academic help, they also serve as role models. “Their expertise, knowledge and diverse backgrounds offer students a unique opportunity to study with people who provide a solid foundation in their respective academic disciplines and insights into workplace experiences.”

More information, including an online application, is available at www.tri-c.edu/tutoring

This program was made possible by a generous grant from the Kresge Foundation.
