Working as a Peer Science Tutor

Do you love science? Do you enjoy problem solving? Are you the go-to person when your friends need help with their assignments? If so, then you should consider applying to be a peer science tutor in the MAX Center. Peer tutors aren’t necessarily science majors, but they must have a passion for science that they can relay to the students they work with. We will teach you the skills that you need in order to work as a science tutor.

Science Tutor Job Description
Science tutors assist students enrolled in 100 and 200 level science courses. They participate in weekly science tutor meetings and complete the tutor training program. After completing 25 hours of tutoring, they earn College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) certification. Science tutors work with students one-to-one or in groups and engage in research and ongoing projects in the MAX Center and on campus. Science tutor candidates must have completed (respectively) CHEM 111/112 (or CHEM115) and have earned a grade of B or better. They have excellent communication skills, a thorough knowledge of their subject area, and the ability to work well with individuals and groups.
