Become a Peer Tutor

A great leadership and resume building opportunity

Becoming a Peer Tutor is a great on-campus part-time employment opportunity for qualified CUI undergraduate students. Tutoring allows for flex time as tutors create a work schedule around their own classes (minimum commitment of 4-6 hours per week for the course(s) they tutor).

Upper-class students who meet the qualifications are encouraged to apply to become peer tutors. Freshmen and transfers can apply during their second semester at Concordia. Please follow these steps:

  1. Read the list of qualifications below.
  2. Click on Courses with Tutors to find out which courses offer peer tutoring.
  3. Complete the Peer Tutor Application.
  4. Request a recommendation from a faculty member in the department with the course(s) you wish to tutor. Inform your reference that the Faculty Recommendation Form must be completed for your application to be considered.

If you meet the minimum qualifications, you will be contacted by the Academic Coaching Director, Kristen Schmidt, and may be asked for an interview.

Most hiring occurs before a semester begins.
