Overview of Community Tutoring
THINK TANK offers CRLA-certified tutors that support external requests for private tutoring from the community.
THINK TANK tutors are trained and certified using CRLA’s International Tutor Training Program to ensure quality tutoring, communication, and the facilitation of learning with a diverse population of students. Tutoring helps students to improve subject comprehension, develop learning skills, and receive individualized attention for their subject matter.
Note: Tutors cannot guarantee grades on assignments or in courses. Tutors are required to maintain academic integrity. Tutors not associated with THINK TANK or the University of Arizona may post their services on the Tutor Matching Service website. Only tutors with one or more badges from THINK TANK have been trained and supervised to the standards of THINK TANK.
