Program Description (for students):
The Gateway Tutoring Program is a special tutoring program based on an integrated tutoring model, in which trained tutors are assigned to specific instructors to observe and take notes in class, help facilitate classroom activities, and conduct group study sessions outside of class based on classroom lectures and textbook material. Currently, only students whose instructors have requested a Gateway tutor for his/her course can work with a Gateway tutor. Please ask your instructor if he/she is participating in the Gateway Tutoring Program.
However, general tutoring is available on most subjects through the Learning Assistance Center (LAC) in LR114 and on Math only in the Math & Science Center (MSC) in S300.
Program Description (for potential tutors):
Gateway Tutoring is a best-practice program model instituted at Rio Hondo in 2009 through the Basic Skills Initiative and is a component of the Title V (IDEAS) grant. Gateway tutors must maintain a 3.0 grade point average and have earned a “B” or higher in the course level on which they intend to tutor. Depending upon eligibility and availability, a Gateway tutor will be assigned to work directly with a specific instructor and will be provided specialized training, support, and supplies. If you are interested in learning more about, and possibly participating in the Gateway Tutoring Program as a Gateway tutor, please contact Hector Molina or Moises Mata in the LAC (room LR 114) or send an email to Elizabeth Telles using the Contact Form below.
