Application to be a Peer Tutor (Student Success Network)
Becoming a Peer Tutor
A Peer Tutor is a student who has achieved above average marks in the course area and has a desire
to help fellow students. Tutors must be caring and patient in addition to being strong academically.
The role of a Peer Tutor is to assist the student in learning how to perform the skill independently;
this means the tutor is there to help the tutee, not do the work for them.
Tutors are paid $14.00/hour and can work a maximum of 24 hours per semester.
If you are interested in working as a Peer Tutor, please submit the application to the Student Success
Network (SSN) Room 500A.
Please Note: all applications for a position as a Peer Tutor must be supported by a faculty member.
New peer tutors will meet with a representative from the Student Success Network to review the policies
and procedures of the program.
You will be matched up with another student who has requested tutoring services, depending on demand. At
your first meeting with the student you should create a tutoring plan and agree to meet on a schedule.
Tutees are allowed a maximum of 10 hours per semester of tutoring time. Tutors can work a maximum of 24
hours per semester. Please note that tutors are now paid in a lump sum at the end of each semester.
You will be required to fill out a tutoring session report at the end of each session which must be signed by
the student being tutored. An invoice and a tutoring session report template will be provided for you.
