Want to be a tutor?

Being a tutor can be a very satisfying experience that contributes to self-development. You can either apply for a paid position or become a volunteer tutor. We are always looking for students who earn a B or better in difficult courses who are interested in helping other students learn.

The peer tutor is primarily a learning facilitator who develops autonomous, effective learners who can function independently to meet their learning goals. Thus, conceptual understanding of content is developed through interactive sessions that encourage engagement in the learning process.


How to schedule an interview

If you are interested in a paid position, go to the student employment website and find the tutoring position in the Learning Assistance Center. If you want to become a volunteer tutor, join the Peer Mentor Ohana.
