We are in need of Tutors

Are you interested in helping your peers?  We are in need of tutors in all areas of study.  Peer tutoring can be a rewarding experience for everyone involved.  As a tutor, you will receive:

 

  • A sense of pride and accomplishment for having helped someone else. 
  • Increased academic mastery.
  • A greater sense of dedication to your own instruction.
  • Increased self-esteem, confidence, and sense of adequacy as a tutor.
  • A new or increased sense of responsibility.
  • Empathy for the students for whom learning may be much more of a struggle.



A tutor must be academically competent in one or more subject areas and have good interpersonal and communication skills.  As a peer tutor, you will receive compensation based on an hourly rate.  If you are interested in giving an hour or two a week to help another student, please contact the Student Success and Retention Program located in Moss Hall, or complete and return the application to 115 Moss Hall.
