Become a Peer Tutor


A great leadership and resume building opportunity

Becoming a Peer Tutor is a great on-campus part-time employment opportunity for qualified NU undergraduate students.

It is also a great leadership and resume building opportunity that offers a rewarding community-building experience . It allows for flexibility; tutors set their own work schedule (minimum commitment of 8 hours per week).

Undergraduate students who meet the qualifications are encouraged to apply to become peer tutors. First year students, transfer students, and native modern language speakers (ARAB, CHNS, FRNH, GRMN, HBRW, ITLN, JPNS, PORT, RSSN, and SPNS) can apply during their second semester at NU.

We are also recruiting students who have attended NUin Boston, England, Greece, Ireland, and Italy.

The first step to becoming a peer tutor is completing the Peer Tutor Application on our website. If you meet the minimum qualifications and have listed courses we are seeking, you will be contacted to setup an interview.

Recruitment is ongoing however, the peak recruiting periods are at the beginning and end of each semester.
