Meet Our Tutors

The KCC tutoring staff consists of current and former KCC students, community professionals and adjunct faculty members. Each tutor is required to complete CRLA Regular/Level 1 Training by the end of the semester in which he/she is hired. Tutors are highly proficient and in some cases have mastered the subject area they tutor.

Why I tutor: "The one-on-one interaction can make a real difference in the student's success IF the student realizes that the 'struggle' is not a sign of failure. It is part of the learning process.

I enjoy helping students organize their thoughts and make connections with the content they are learning in the classroom."
