UTS Tutoring

Interested in a peer tutor position?

Tutoring Services employs 60-90 peer tutors each semester on an as-needed basis. Tutors provide individual and drop-in tutoring sessions in subjects in which the tutor has attained a grade of B or better. Tutors act as a guide and coach to facilitate learning and assist the student in becoming a successful, independent learner. The purpose of tutoring is to increase and enhance mastery of concepts or applications of a specific course of study. Tutors integrate effective study and learning strategies to maximize the tutee's potential for academic progress.

Minimum Qualifications:

  1. Be a current student at UW-Platteville with a course load of at least six (6) credits.
  2. Have earned a grade no lower than B or have tested out of the course in which you wish to tutor.

"The most rewarding part of my job is when a concept clicks in a tutee's head.  I don't really think much can compare to the satisfaction of being partially responsible for making that click happen."
