About Our Tutors
Community Tutors are University of Arizona students who have completed THINK TANK's tutor training and continuously attend supplemental skill-enhancing training sessions. Our training program holds the College Reading and Learning Association’s International Tutor Training Program Certification. THINK TANK's tutors have shown academic success at the UA, as well as the ability to communicate and facilitate learning with a diverse population of students.
The scheduling software, provided through Tutor Matching Service, allows for badges to be issued to tutors based on their qualifications. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the badges. Badges will help you to know you are getting a THINK TANK trained and certified tutor.
