Frequently Asked Questions

How much does tutoring cost?

Tutoring is absolutely FREE of charge. Los Angeles Trade-Tech wants to make sure everyone has an opportunity to succeed in college, and this is just one of the many ways we show our dedication to helping students succeed in college.

Are the Tutors trained?

Absolutely! Every tutor must first meet academic qualifications and be approved for employment following an interview. Before any tutor can begin tutoring he or she must complete tutor training. In addition to these required hours of training, Tutors have the opportunity to complete additional training by attending training sessions that are offered throughout the semester. By meeting various training requirements, Tutors can eventually become certificated as a Regular, Advanced, or Master Tutor.
Los Angeles Trade-Tech’s Tutoring Center has received the highest level of certification by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Since March 1989, over 300 college and university tutorial programs in the United States and Canada have received tutor-training certification through CRLA’s International Tutor Certification Program(ITCP). This certification provides recognition for the successful work of Tutors from an international organization, CRLA. In addition, the certification process sets a standard of skills and training for Tutors.
