Become a Tutor

Working with other students in a helping role will provide you with some of the most valuable experience you could ever get during your college years. Students interested in becoming chemistry, math, or physics tutors should attend a 30-minute information session to begin the application process. Students who are unable to attend are encouraged to apply in a future semester. Recruitment for the subsequent semester begins after fall break and spring break. If hired, tutors will be added by our staff to a section of USC 210, Introduction to College Tutoring.
