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 upper class NU undergraduate students.

It is also a great leadership and resume building opportunity that offers a rewarding community-building experience . It allows for flex time; tutors set their own work schedule (minimum commitment of 6 hours per week M-F 9am-6pm during Fall and Spring, 9-5PM in Summer 1 and 2).

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

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

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

Do you want to help your peers succeed? Do you have a cumulative GPA over a 3.0? Are you passionate about NU courses you have taken and received an A or A- as a final grade? Then apply to become a Peer Tutor!  Please visit our Application tab on the left of this page. If you have any questions, we would love to hear from you.
