About our Student Staff
Campus Academic Resource Program has a unique design unlike most academic support programs at both SF State and universities elsewhere. From our administrative staff, to our coordinators, receptionists, and tutors, we are all current undergraduate and graduate students. This allows CARP employees to develop their professional skills by operating a well-respected, full-fledged tutorial and academic support program.
After a rigorous hiring and screening process, all tutors complete an initial training program of 15 hours, which includes among other things attending an orientation, attending workshops, participating in a mentorship program, observing veteran tutors, and completing mock tutorial sessions. In addition, after our tutors begin tutoring, they continue to participate in our on-going training program, which includes completing professional development projects, continuing to observe fellow tutors, and preparing to give workshops and specialized tutorial sessions.
