Become an Individual Tutor


Tutors must have received at least an A- in the course or an equivalent AP/credit for specified courses. There are, however, some exceptions to this rule! To see if you're eligible to be a tutor, please email the Tutor Clearinghouse.

For tutors who placed out of taking a specific course due to AP credit, it is your responsibility to read the syllabus of the course you want to tutor. We depend on you to be knowledgeable of the material that will be covered in the course. 

If it has been a while since you have taken the course, we encourage you reach out to the faculty for their recommendations of material to review so you can be a great resource for your tutee(s).

Time Commitment

Individual Tutors are expected to have in their schedule up to 1 hour per week available for each tutee (depending on individual tutee need).

Rate of Pay

The Tutor Clearinghouse pays its Individual Tutors $12/hour, with the exception of engineering tutors, who receive $15/hour.


Individual Tutors must apply for the position every term. Your application does not carry over from term-to-term. Applications to be an Individual Tutor will open Friday, March 26th. Apply to become and Individual Tutor.

Specific Match

Matches between specific tutor/tutee are limited (through the Individual Tutor granting process) and have been converted to an online format. Details to request a specific tutor are provided on the Individual Tutor Request form.  In addition to completing the information requested on the Individual Tutor Request form, the specific tutor/tutee (if granted)  MUST complete the online form (Qualtrics) that addresses the role the Academic Honor Principle plays in providing remote tutoring support for enrolled students.  Individuals wishing to work together must complete this process before the match is considered official and the Individual Tutor can be paid by the Tutor Clearinghouse.

Online training sessions are now MANDATORY for ALL tutors. Students will receive an official hiring email from and will be advised of online training details.

Haven't Been Matched?

If you have applied to be a tutor, but haven't received an email from us yet, it's because we haven't received any requests from students for tutors in that course. If you want to increase your chances of being matched, we encourage you to apply to be a tutor in a different course in which you have done well. Please email at any time if you would like more tutees, or for information on what courses we are experiencing a demand in.
