## Working as a Peer Math Tutor

Do you love math? 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 math tutor in the MAX Center. Peer tutors aren’t necessarily math majors, but they must have a passion for math 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 math tutor.
