What is the OCCC Volunteer Tutor Program?
The OCCC Tutoring Center is an expanding organization that relies on volunteers from our community to provide academic support services to Oregon Coast Community College students.
The Tutoring Center is always taking applications for Volunteer Tutors in Lincoln County. We seek to serve students in Yachats, Waldport, Seal Rock, South Beach, Newport, Toledo, Siletz, Depoe Bay and Lincoln City.
We are looking for anyone who is willing to help students to improve skills in mathematics, reading, writing, science, ESOL, GED, computers, study skills, resumes, other subject areas and life skills. Tutoring services are just one of the many ways OCCC is able to provide support to our growing population of credit and non-credit students.
NEW VOLUNTEERS are always needed, and are welcome to join us at any time during the year. The only qualifications are a GED or High School Diploma, patience, and an ability to communicate effectively with a diverse population of individuals from a variety of age groups, cultures, and backgrounds.
Please fill out a Volunteer Tutor Application ( volunteer_tutor_application_form.pdf ) and call the Tutor Coordinator to make an appointment for an intake interview and information session.
TUTORING SESSIONS must take place at an OCCC campus during regular hours if schedules allow or at a local library if necessary. Once the first session is set up by the coordinator, and both parties are willing to schedule future appointments, it is recommended that the student and tutor exchange contact information (telephone or email addresses) to maintain communication.
TRACKING YOUR TIME is important. In order to keep accurate and up to date records, please fill out a tutor time log. These forms are available outside of the tutoring center or can be sent by email if you request one.
