Fill out and return the Peer Tutor Application form. Employment interview will take place following the submission of the Application if the above conditions are satisfactorily met.
Writing/English tutors: Since most tutoring centers on writing, approval from Mr. Chris Rush is needed. If the prospective tutor has not taken a Composition class with Mr. Rush he/she must submit a paper written for another class for Mr. Rush to evaluate. If not approved as a writing tutor, he/she may still be approved to tutor other subjects.
Other subjects: Tutors applying to tutor only in a specific subject/major or class must receive approval by department head of that field.
