What is CRLA?

crla indexCRLA (College Reading & Learning Association) is a professional organization devoted to the fields of reading, learning assistance, developmental education, tutoring, and mentoring at the college/adult level.  CRLA sponsors the International Tutoring  Program Certification.


Who is eligible for CRLA certification?

Most programs on campus that employ tutors are already participating in CRLA.  Please ask your supervisor if you aren’t sure.  If your program would like to participate in CRLA, contact Jess Willford at 766-4354.


What are CRLA requirements?

Level I Certification:

  • 25 hours of real-time tutoring experience (working with students)
  • 10 hours of training

Level II Certification

  • 50 cumulative hours of actual tutoring experience
  • 20 cumulative hours of additional training                

Tutors must also:

  • Complete an interview and be hired by participating program.
  • Earn a grade of “A” or “B” in subject content being tutored
  • Be evaluated by supervisor each semester

New for Fall 2015

LeaRN now requires that tutors seeking CRLA certification must participate in the WyoGroup and submit a reflection before they can be certified.  Tutors will be invited to the WyoGroup once they've attended their first CRLA workshop.
