Vetting & Recommending Tutors

We are looking for your best students for our exclusive pool of peer tutors. We most often review applications for biology, chemistry, and modern languages, but we hire for other areas of study regularly.

Peer tutor positions are competitive, as tutoring is an excellent opportunity for students to assist others, build communication and leadership skills, strengthen knowledge of their areas of study, and build resumes.

To become a peer tutor, a student must have:

  • A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Sophomore standing or higher
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Faculty vetting in all topics they wish to tutor

Has a student asked you for “Vetting” in a subject you teach?

In an effort to improve the quality of our services the CTAE is now asking that our student staff supply us with the name of a faculty member who can verify their competency in that subject material. Each tutor must find a faculty member who believes in their ability to tutor a topic prior to being scheduled for that topic.

If you agree that the tutor is qualified, and they have received an “A” in your class, you need only sign off on their vetting form (provided by student) or send the student an email that states you believe them to be knowledgeable enough in your subject to tutor other students.

Do you know a student who would make a great Tutor?

Simply ask the student to complete the online application here on our website, under "employment".  When the applicant is asked "Has a faculty member requested you to complete this form?" Instruct your student to insert your full name into the text field provided.  You may also simply send an email to tutoringcenter@luc.edu if you prefer. Please put "Tutor recommendation" in the subject line.
