Become a tutor

Cégep à distance is looking for qualified individuals to coach and guide students in various courses. We need a bank of candidates that we can call upon to tutor students as enrollment increases.

If you apply, your application will be evaluated and you may be contacted for a telephone interview when additional tutors are needed.

Role of Cégep à distance tutors

The courses offered by Cégep à distance are self-contained: the course materials provided to the students cover the entire subject matter of the course and include all of the exercises and assignments to be completed.

Tutors do not actually teach the course, but rather provide tailored learning support to the students.

The tutor's task is to provide the following services to the students:

  • Welcome them
  • Support and motivate them
  • Correct, evaluate and grade their assignments
  • Answer their questions (by phone or email, as the case may be)
  • Provide quick, reliable service to encourage them to progress at their own pace
  • Monitor their progress to increase the success rate
