Santa Barbara Cal-SOAP hires college students from UCSB, SBCC, and Westmont College to serve as Tutors at any of our 20+ sites across Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria. Cal-SOAP tutors work in classrooms with teachers and at the after school sites, where they assist students with mastering course material to prepare them for entry into post-secondary education.

Cal-SOAP Tutors work with 7th-12th graders not only as tutors, but as mentors. Cal-SOAP Tutors also serve as a resource for any students who have questions about college. The Cal-SOAP staff works hard toward ensuring that the tutors are trained to answer questions regarding college preparation and financial aid.
