Becoming a Volunteer Tutor
The first step to become a volunteer tutor is to apply. You can obtain the application and return it at the front desk in LA 201. By filling out the application, you are
confirming that you have earned a B or better in the class(es) you are interested
in tutoring. (Be sure to list all classes you qualify to tutor, as we do receive requests
for various courses.)
Turn in Recommendation
Volunteer tutors are required to have a letter of recommendation from a UVU faculty
member on file. The letter simply needs to recommend you to be a volunteer tutor.
You can have the faculty member send the email to Susan Marie Nielsen email@example.com.
Provide a Transcript
Tutors who volunteer must provide a copy of their academic transcript. It can be an
unofficial copy, printed off of UVlink. This allows us to verify that you did well
enough in a course to tutor it. When we have your transcript on file, it makes it
easier for us to match you with the appropriate students and courses.
Volunteer tutors should complete an availability form each semester, in order for us to match you (at the most convenient times) with students
requesting tutors. The availability form can be obtained and returned at the front
desk in LA 201. Make sure you fill out a new form anytime your schedule changes (i.e.
new semester, new job, etc…).
All UVU tutors are required to complete CRLA level one certification.
