Our Tutors

The  Educational Success Center employs nearly 40 students per semester as tutors in our labs. Tutors provide one-one-one and group tutoring in math, science, and other content areas through Tutor Match, a module within Brainfuse, our online tutoring platform.

The Educational Success Center generally hires students who:

  • Have a strong background in the area they will be tutoring.
  • Have a B or higher in the courses they tutor.
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. (If this requirement is not met, a tutor may be placed on probation for one semester.)
  • Ability to work a flexible schedule.
  • Interest in working with students.
  • Patience, sensitivity, and interpersonal skills to work with all students.
  • Ability to maintain a positive work atmosphere by behaving and communicating in a cooperative manner with all students, co-workers, and supervisors.

We are not currently hiring tutors for the upcoming semesters. When hiring will begin again, the information on this page will be updated.
