How Do Students Become Peer Tutors?

The Academic Success Centre welcomes applications from students who have a good understanding of the content in their course and enjoy helping people. There are many advantages to becoming an online Peer Tutor, including: 

  • Earning money while studying
  • Working from home
  • Developing coaching and interpersonal skills
  • Improving their resume
  • Reinforcing their own learning by teaching a fellow student
  • Meeting new people

Below are the required steps to become a Peer Tutor:

Step 1: Complete the online Peer Tutor Application Form

Step 2: Forward the Instructor Recommendation Form link to their instructor(s) to be completed and submitted on their behalf for each course they wish to tutor.

Step 3: If demand exists for tutoring in their program area, the student will be invited to an interview with an ASC staff.

Step 4: If hired, the Peer Tutor candidate will be invited to complete the Peer Tutor Training Course in LEARN. 

Step 5: After completing the Peer Tutor Training course, Peer Tutors are invited to a final online onboarding meeting in Microsoft Teams. After the onboarding meeting, Peer Tutors may start tutoring.

If students have any questions about the Peer Tutor application process, please encourage them to send an email to peertutoring@rrc.ca and an ASC staff will assist them.
