This presentation describes the distinct and lasting benefit of working in a community college learning center through presenting findings from a qualitative study exploring the impact of working as a tutor on professionals who were formerly tutors.

For this presentation, we will first explain the study and the findings, which will include former tutors’ recommendations for how supervisors can best support tutors’ development into professionals. Next, the audience will have the opportunity to discuss the methods by which they, as supervisors, can best support their tutors as they transition to professional roles. Additionally, the presenters will discuss the implications of the focus on transition to professional positions including recruitment, retention, and training.
