Center for Tutoring & Academic Excellence

Apply to the CTAE

The CTAE is relentless in its pursuit of the brightest and friendliest of our students.  Would you like to become a member of our staff of young go-getters, ready to diagram any molecule, parse any word problem, or tackle any equation, no matter how differential, that may be keeping other students from an "A?"  We certainly could use you AND your enthusiasm!

Peer Tutors

The Center for Tutoring & Academic Excellence welcomes applications for new tutors in all academic subjects. (We most often review applications for biology, chemistry, and modern languages, but we hire for other areas of study regularly.)

Peer tutor positions are highly competitive as tutoring is an excellent opportunity to assist others, build communication and leadership skills, and build your own resume. Put your best foot forward by reviewing the Career Development Center's  and correspondence guide, or by calling the Career Development Center at 773-508-7716 for assistance with your applications.

If we cannot offer you a position at the time of your initial application or we are not currently hiring for the subject-area in which you would like to tutor, your application will be kept on file for the academic year.

To become a peer tutor, a student must have:

  • An "A-" in the subject that they wish to tutor
  • A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Sophomore standing or higher
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Faculty recommendations (List contact info for references on application. DO NOT request faculty to send letters with application.)

While Federal Work Study eligibility is not required, preference is given to students who have Federal Work Study as part of their financial aid package. If you are unclear whether or not you have Federal Work Study, information about the program can be found on the Center for Experiential Learning's Student Employment Program pages at www.luc.edu/studentemployment.

All new peer tutors must participate in a required tutor training program.
