Apply to be a Tutor


If you are a current USCA student who would like to work as an academic peer tutor, please click here to complete the application.

If you are not a USCA student, please visit our Private Tutoring page for more information on tutoring opportunities. 

To work as an academic peer tutor, you must be a USCA student; have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher; have an A or B in the classes in which you would like to tutor; and we must receive two faculty recommendations for you.  If a position is available, we will contact the faculty members listed on your application for their recommendations. There is no need for you to contact faculty for reference letters.


Please note that although we provide tutoring for many courses, we do not provide tutors for all courses. We focus on providing tutoring support for courses with high DFW rates at the 100 and 200 levels that have a high tutor-request rate from students in those courses. Therefore, the courses/subjects for which you feel you could provide tutoring may not necessarily be courses for which we need support.

Courses/Subjects for which we often need additional support include: 

  • Sciences (biology, especially BIOL 121 & 122; anatomy & physiology; chemistry, especially 111 & 112; physics, etc.)
  • Business courses (accounting, finance, economics)
  • Languages (Spanish, French, & German)

If your application shows that you could successfully tutor in a course for which we need additional tutors, someone will contact you via the email and/or phone number you listed on your application.

If you have any questions, please call the Coordinator of Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction at 803-641-3795.
