We look forward to providing assistance to your students to help them achieve success in your courses!

The University-wide Tutorial Program offers a variety of different tutoring formats to provide academic support for your students. Faculty recommendations are the primary source of tutors in the University-wide Tutorial Program.

Recommend a Tutor

If you’ve had a student in your course and you think they would make a great tutor, let us know! The minimum qualifications for all UWTP positions are:

  • Sophomore status, or above (Graduate Students are eligible too!)
  • 3.0 overall GPA
  • Achieved A or B in the course
  • A recommendation from you

If you would like us to recruit this student to tutor specifically for your course, but do not have a student in mind, please email msimmons@esu.edu or kmckenzie@esu.edu.
