Duties of Tutors
Tutors are not Teachers. Instructor is the primary source of information for your coursework. The goal of tutoring at Los Angeles Trade-Tech College is to help students become active, independent learners. Tutoring is not intended to be a substitute for class attendance, a quick fix the day before an exam, or a question-and-answer exercise. Los Angeles Trade-Tech College Tutors, who have demonstrated mastery of the subject matter that they tutor and participated in an intensive, on-going training program, use techniques such as questioning, modeling, listening and demonstration.
