Advanced medical students (M2s, M3s, and M4s) are eligible to apply as tutors and will receive training as well as financial compensation. Tutors are expected to have performed at or above the mean in classes that they wish to tutor. Tutors must also be recommended by a faculty member, course director, clerkship director, or administrator.
To apply to become a tutor, complete the Peer Tutoring Application.
Once approved by the Director of Academic Success, tutors will be notified and may begin tutoring after they receive authorization to work by CMU Student Employment Services and participate in a mandatory orientation session. This session will include payroll information and processes, tutoring guidelines, available resources, learning and study strategies, logistics and other recommendations.
Tutors are currently paid hourly and may tutor from one to three hours per week, depending upon course schedules and tutee needs.
