Request a volunteer peer tutor
As part of the SAIT Co-Curricular Record (CCR), volunteer peer tutors may be available for your subject area. All volunteer peer tutors have been screened to ensure they meet specific academic and professional requirements.
To request a volunteer peer tutor, please fill out a peer tutor request form and we will match you with an available volunteer. Please note that tutors are subject to availability and there may not be one available for every subject.
Please note: Co-Co-curricular peer tutors are not available during the spring and summer semester (May - August.)
Hire a one-on-one tutor
Connect with a tutor through the SAIT Tutor Registry — a list of available peers and professionals who have been screened to ensure qualification in their field or subject area. Tutors on the registry set their own availability and hourly rates and will work with you to schedule sessions and arrange payments.
SAIT does not employ tutors through this registry, and we do not require tutors to provide criminal record checks and cannot guarantee personal character. For your safety, always meet your tutor in a public place.

You must have an 'A' grade or higher in the courses you wish to tutor.
