Fall 2018

Before applying below to become a peer tutor, please read our Potential Peer Tutor FAQs.  If you have questions not answered in the FAQs please email Christy Clemons (clemons[at]unc.edu).

Applicants must have an overall 3.0 GPA or higher and a B or higher in the courses for which they tutor.

If you are selected as a peer tutor, we will enroll you in EDUC 387, a 3-credit-hour pass/fail course (EE).  All peer tutors must be available either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings from 6-9pm for tutoring.  The class will also meet during these hours. Prior tutoring experience is not required; mandatory training is provided during the first two class meetings of the semester. You must fill out an application to be added to the course.

You will be tutoring all of the courses you list on the application below. Only list courses you feel confident tutoring.

Tutors are selected on a rolling basis and applicants will be informed when a decision about their application has been made. The application will be closed when the course has been filled.

If you have already completed EDUC 387 and wish to apply to be a paid Learning Center tutor, please click here.
