​​​​​​​Tutoring is offered free to all undergraduate CMU students enrolled in undergraduate on-campus classes.  Our tutors are very successful college students who have been recommended by our faculty as knowledgeable about course content.  Most tutors earned at least an A- when they took the class. They also received training in how to help you understand the course material and become a successful student on your own.

To get a tutor, come to Academic Advising and Assistance in Ronan 250.  Sign up during the first couple weeks of the semester to have the best chance of obtaining a tutor on the spot (their schedules tend to fill fast) and the best chance of not falling behind in your class.  If a tutor is not immediately available, we will attempt to find one and will notify you if we do.

To make the most of tutoring we ask that you establish a regular weekly meeting with your tutor and that you prepare for the session by reviewing, doing homework, and making a list of questions or topics to discuss with your tutor. 

We won't do your homework for you, but we will show you how to be your own best resource.

BECOMING A TUTOR: Policies and Procedures

Any undergraduate or graduate CMU student may apply to be a tutor. The applicant must have a MINIMUM overall GPA of 3.0 and have earned a grade of no lower than a A- in the course to be tutored.

Secondly, prospective tutors need approval from the department in which the class is offered or from Academic Assistance Programs.

Tutors are expected to set up days and times to meet with students and should group ​them to meet at the same time when possible.

Tutors may set a limit on how many hours they are willing to work.


Proce​ss for becoming a tutor:

Pick up an application from the Academic Assistance office, Ronan Hall 250.

Fill out the application and have it signed by the chair of the department or the professor, unless you already have prior approval via faculty recommendation.

Return the completed and signed form to the Academic Assistance office, Ronan Hall 250, and set up an interview appointment.

Tutors are required to attend update sessions as scheduled throughout the semester.


Please Note: Students who are already employed by the University may not work more than a total of 50 hours per two week pay period when combining that job and tutoring.​​​​
