SI is an additional form of tutoring. It is for specific courses/instructors/sections. The tutor attends class as a role model and note taker then holds review sessions each week for the enrolled students.
Embedded Tutoring is a method of having a specific tutor matched to the course/section who will offer review sessions weekly. This tutor collaborates with the teacher on content.

- Attempt your assignment prior to attending tutoring.
- List the course instructor as your primary resource before scheduling a tutoring session.
- Bring prepared questions, your class notes, textbook, and other materials.
- Stay as long as you need or until the session is over.
The Program provides support for two (2) hours per week per subject. A student may meet with Mrs. Sheri Yech to discuss additional time or alternative methods for support.
BECOME A TUTOR
Tutors are selected through an interview process and the recommendation from their instructors or the Tutoring Coordinator. Qualified tutors must receive at least a grade of B+ or above in the courses being tutored or demonstrated equivalent experience. Tutors gain professional development through training and actual work experience, and, for those who meet specific requirements, may receive recognition as a certified tutor through CRLA. Tutoring is one of the most enjoyable jobs on campus. The satisfaction at having made a difference in someone's academic life is enormous. Tutoring is also a good paying job and hours are extremely flexible.
The best tutors are King's students who have already taken the course and received a grade of at least B+ or better in the course in which they wish to tutor, and recommendations from a faculty member. You are required to have a strong working knowledge of specific course content and must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0.
You must demonstrate effective interpersonal skills in working collaboratively with peers and teaching with compassion as you’ll need to teach another student how to study and review course material.
You must be a good problem solver and demonstrate organizational abilities in managing tasks, maintaining schedules, managing time, and completing your own work assignments thoroughly.
If you believe you have these skills and would like to become a tutor, contact the Academic Skills Center to schedule an appointment with the Tutoring Coordinator.
If selected, you’ll complete one Tutor Orientation Training session and Sexual Harassment training as a prerequisite before tutoring begins. Contingent upon the requests and availability of tutors in specific subjects, you can start working immediately after training.
