“My tutor is absolutely great. If it wasn’t for him, I’d probably be failing econ!”

To request a tutor…

  1. Schedule a brief intake interview. (The information we gather will help us with matching.)

  2. Complete and return the Tutor Request Form to Academic Support Specialist Nate Payovich.

Once the intake is done and the form is returned, you are ready to be matched!

Students are typically matched with a tutor within 48 hours and an email is sent with the tutor’s contact information. The tutor also receives an email with the student’s contact information. The tutor and student determine their own schedule.

If we receive a request for a class that we don’t currently have a tutor for, we’ll do our best to recruit someone.

If you have questions or to schedule an intake, stop by the Center for Student Opportunity, call Nate at (989) 463-7247 or email

To be a tutor…

Tutoring is a great way for students to earn extra money and help their fellow classmates! The hours are flexible, you determine your own schedule and the number of students and classes you’d like to tutor.

There is an application and we require a signature from a professor that knows your work and is able to attest to your ability to tutor a particular course. We also have a brief orientation/training that all new tutors are required to attend.

If you have any questions or would like to sign up to be a tutor, visit the Center for Student Ooportunity, call (989) 463-7247, or email
