Tutor Training

The RIT Tutor Training Program helps student tutors become more skilled with some of the basic principles of tutoring and professional development related to their role as student leaders. These workshops are open to all tutors hired by the various departments or learning centers of RIT or to students who wish to strengthen their helping skills before applying to be a tutor.

Students may have opportunities to earn tutoring certifications by attending tutor training workshops and by accruing tutoring hours and experience.
