Tutoring

“Tutoring helped me focus on important concepts and understand the material better!”

To request a tutor…

To request a tutor, fill out the Tutor Request Form.

Tutor requests are sent to the professor of your class and to the Academic Support staff as soon as they are submitted. Once you have submitted the tutor request form, are ready to be matched! It is that easy!

Students are typically matched with a tutor within 3 business days and an email is sent with your tutor’s name and contact information and/or any updates on your tutor request. The tutor also receives an email with the student’s contact information. The tutor and student determine their own schedule. Tutoring will be offered online or in person, whichever is decided by the tutor and student pair. 

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, call Maria Jones at 989-463-7428 or email jonesma@alma.edu.

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.

If you’re interested, fill out a tutor application on Handshake. You will need to upload your resume and attach it to the application. From there, press ‘apply externally,’ and you will be asked to fill out the electronic application. You will need to fill out this application for each class you would like to serve as a tutor for. After your first application, most of your responses will pre-populate to assist you in this process. Your application(s) will go to the professor you select for approval and then to the Tutoring Coordinator to schedule a tutor orientation.

If you have questions about the application process, call Maria Jones at (989) 463-7428 or email jonesma@alma.edu.

How to Update the Classes you Tutor For

Update the tutor application which will allow you to select the courses you want to tutor for and automatically email your professors to ask for approval for you. Please fill out this form for each new class you want to tutor for, We will get notified once your professors approve those courses and will add them with the other classes you are approved to tutor for. If you want to remove courses, just email us at actutoring@alma.edu with which courses you wish to remove.
