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
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

All UVU tutors are required to complete orientation and one 50-min training (offered weekly). They are also encouraged to become CRLA certified tutors.
