Why should I tutor?

You can change how a student feels about a class:

  • Do you have a sincere desire to help others?
  • Are you able to communicate effectively?
  • Do you have a 'B' or better in the subject you wish to tutor?
  • If you answered yes to all of these, then we invite you to apply for a rewarding position as an academic tutor.

Here's a partial list of some of the rewards of being a tutor:

  • Help others.
  • Enhance your knowledge of the subject. (The jury is still out on whether or not tutees learn more than tutors during a tutoring session!)
  • Develop and improve your communication skills.
  • Learn how to become a more organized student.
  • Increase your confidence by facing and defeating challenges.
  • Gain experience in a leadership role.
  • Looks good when applying to universities or future jobs.
  • Work on campus, close to classes.
  • Earn some extra $$.
  • Receive priority registration.
