Information on Tutoring

SBCC Tutors

  • An Accudemia Kiosk is a specific software tool used on a physical computer station placed in each tutoring space on campus. Since we are no longer on campus, we have designed a version that can be operated from your computer at home. The student will not directly interact with the kiosk. The tutor will ask a series of questions (3 to be exact) of the student and make the selection for them.

    The information that is gathered through Accudemia will be vital to demonstrate the positive impact you and your fellow tutors have on student success.

    Training Material for tutors:

    1. Watch the training video (7 minutes): https://youtu.be/gncXZAJGH7M
    2. Creating an Accudemia Kiosk
    3. Signing in Students 
    4. Signing out Students 

    After reviewing the training material, tutors should complete this survey to document your status on setting up an Accudemia Kiosk.

  • As a continuation to track tutoring sessions, and recognizing that tutoring may be provided via email or other asynchronous format, we have developed a Google Form to track these interactions. 
     
    If are providing this format of tutoring, please use this Form during your next session to record the interaction with a student. 
    *Please note that this Form requires authentication in SBCC Pipeline. If you have a personal Google account, you should sign out of the personal Google account and then select the link. Alternatively, you can open the link in an incognito window. This will prevent the web browser from recognizing your personal Google account.
