Want to be a Tutor?

As part of the Learning Support department, tutor your fellow Wildcats in the subjects you enjoy. Tutoring is done on an individual appointment and/or drop-in basis. The tutor determines availability for appointments and/or drop-in hours. We require and provide training in tutoring techniques.

Tutors must have earned a "B+" or better grade in the course(s) they wish to tutor (or equivalent ACT score) and be willing to work at least 10 hours per week. We would love to hear from you if you are passionate about what you could offer and accomplish here at Weber State!
