LRC Prospective Tutors
The LRC Tutoring Programs are certified through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), an international tutoring organization. The LRC's CRLA certification process sets an internationally accepted standard of tutor training for the purpose of providing tutors with skills, recognition, and positive reinforcement for their successful work. Currently, the LRC offers two levels of training for tutors, CRLA Level 1 and Level 2.
- Tutors are chosen for their ability to communicate effectively and their desire to help, as well as promptness, dependability, and command of the subject matter.
- Tutors must have a "B" grade or higher in the subject tutored.
- Selection and training of tutors is an important part of the program.
- Applicants must submit a tutor application, a CPP student employment application, recommendations, and unofficial transcripts. Detailed instructions are provided in the application packet.

- Tutors are chosen for their ability to demonstrate sensitivity in working with students from the population that RAMP serves (low-income, first-generation college students, and students with disabilities) and to score at their current grade level on the Nelson-Denny Reading Test.
- Prospective tutors must have completed English 104 and 105 with a grade of "B" or higher.
- Must be a CPP junior, senior, or graduate student with a minimum 2.5 overall GPA (3.0 or higher preferred).
- Knowledge of literacy theories and tutoring methods desired.
- Knowledge of CPP procedures, offices, and organizations related to student interests desired.
- Must be available 8-20 hrs/wk.
- RAMP tutor application
- Tutors are chosen for their ability to demonstrate good writing skills and basic knowledge of the conventions of formal writing. (Applicants must have passed the GWT with a score of 9 or above or submit a writing sample.)
- Tutors must be successful students (unofficial transcripts required).
- During the recruitment process, each applicant is asked to respond to a sample of student writing and describe how he or she would work with that student. There is no one right way to respond--the important thing is to have some insight into how to interact with a struggling writer.
- Applicants must complete a multiple choice "proofreading" test and submit a tutor application with faculty recommendations and a CPP student employment application.
