While each tutoring area may have more specific hiring criteria, the ASC generally hires students who ...

  • Have a good background in their tutoring area
  • Have a generally good student background (usually B average or better)
  • Can list one or more faculty as references
  • Enjoy working with and helping their peers
  • Can commit to being consistent, reliable employees
  • Have federal-workstudy eligibility (helpful but not required)

The ASC generally hires tutors in the first week or so of each semester and then provides 6 hours of initial paid training and more area-specific training before tutors begin tutoring. Current starting pay is $7.50/hr. After completing required training and tutoring hours, tutor pay increases to $8.00/hr, and tutors earn a tutoring certificate from the College Reading and Learning Association of North America.
