Peer Tutor Application - Spring 2022
Tutoring will be offered both in-person at the Rutgers Learning Centers and via Zoom in Spring 2022.
SASHP Peer Tutoring is searching for honors students from across the university to volunteer to tutor fellow Rutgers undergraduate students on a one-on-one basis.
SASHP Peer Tutoring was started by an honors student like you, to give back and share their knowledge with other Rutgers students. As a tutor, you will improve your critical thinking, teaching, & leadership skills, and build your self confidence. You will also increase your connection to the Rutgers community, all while helping your peers to succeed!
Application Deadline: Applications are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis, and will be accepted through the end of the spring 2022 add/drop period or until all positions are filled, whichever comes first.
Eligibility: Undergraduate honors students in good academic standing with the SAS Honors Program, Rutgers Honors College, SEBS Honors Program, or SOE Honors Academy who have completed at least one semester at Rutgers.
Qualifications: Applicants must have:
- enthusiasm, patience, and a desire to assist fellow students;
- a willingness to engage fully in tutor training and learn pedagogical skills;
- the ability to communicate clearly, professionally, and in a timely manner with students and staff;
- the ability to perform tutoring duties ethically and confidentially; and
- availability to tutor at least 2 hours per week on a volunteer basis for the entirety of the semester.

All tutors who started tutoring with our program in Fall 2021 and new tutors starting in Spring 2022 MUST attend training in order to tutor. Students who began tutoring in Spring 2021 or earlier are not required to attend.
Courses: You may tutor any course you completed with a letter grade of B+ or higher. If you placed out of a course (because of high AP/IB or Rutgers placement test scores, or because you transferred in college credit for a course) and are comfortable and CONFIDENT in your ability to tutor the subject material well, you may tutor that course. All tutoring is one-on-one, by appointment, and takes place via Zoom.
Paid Opportunities: Tutors have the opportunity to apply to be a Tutoring Coordinator after at least 1 semester as a Peer Tutor, pending availability of open positions. These positions are paid and the commitment is for one full academic year, and renewable upon recommendation of Dean Ackerman.
