Students are hired term to term or for the academic year and meet two times per week for approximately three hours with three to four students or individually on a first-come, first served basis. Tutors help develop academic skills, lead discussions, provide evaluation, support and mentoring to other students.
The Teaching & Learning Center provides the following tutoring resources: small-group, private, and math and writing labs. All tutors must demonstrate academic excellence by having a high GPA and two faculty recommendations that attest to both subject knowledge and ability to tutor specific courses.
Small Group Tutoring
Tutors conduct small group sessions with six or fewer students. The fee is $120 per course per term, and all groups meet two hours per week. Groups begin week two of the term.
The Teaching & Learning Center maintains a tutor database for some University of Oregon courses. Individual tutoring fees range from $8-10 for lower-division courses (100-200 level) and $10-12 for upper-division courses (300 level and above). Arrangements for individual tutoring are made by the student with the tutor. Lists of available tutors can be picked up at 68 PLC.
Math and Writing Labs
The Center also provides math and writing labs. Free tutors are available.
Students may be able to receive paid tutoring as active members of the Student Support Services (SSS) program or the Office of Multicultural Academic Support (OMAS). Contact these offices directly for more information.
