Role of the STEM Center Tutors

Tutors act as supporters of students’ learning and not as teachers. They are trained to be inquisitive with the students that they tutor in order to encourage the students’ critical thinking abilities. Tutors are students at Palomar Community College and are expected to behave in a professional manner that reflects the positive and collaborative work of the STEM Center.

STEM Center Tutors assist students in the following ways:

  • Clarify concepts and problem-solving techniques
  • Ask questions to extract knowledge that students may not be aware they already have
  • Lead students to develop their own understanding of the material
  • Develop students critical thinking skills to help them become independent learners
  • Share study strategies that help students be successful in their courses
