The Team

Play a central role at HCC as you keep our everyday operations running like clockwork. You'll get the chance to make things happen and work closely with inspiring leaders across different parts of the institution. Whether your role is supportive, administrative, financial or something else, you'll be part of a dynamic team that not only provides HCC students with cutting-edge academic and career tools, it also takes care of its people.

We are currently seeking a Tutor III who will advance the institution's proud tradition of excellence in academics, student life and community service.

The Opportunity

A tutor plays many key roles: teacher, guide and friend.
We're looking for someone who's excited about helping students achieve their potential. Whether you're working in one of HCC's tutoring centers, by yourself on campus or online, you'll strive to transform your students into independent learners who no longer need tutoring services.
Whether you're developing student handouts or locating community resources, teaching or evaluating, or communicating with tutoring supervisors across the District, you'll be playing an important part in creating an exceptional student experience.
If you've got knowledge in a particular area, and would like to help students learn, we'd love to talk with you! Submit your application today.
