Become a Peer Tutor

Why become a Peer Tutor?

By becoming a tutor, you can make extra money during the semester while reviewing your material at the same time. You will be paid $11.00 – $13.50/hour (depending on your year) per hour, up to 12 hours per week, as a Tutor! Many students have seen their marks go up as a result of being a Peer Tutor. In addition, time spent in your tutoring sessions can be recorded on your Co-Curricular Record.
