Tutoring Services

SAIT is dedicated to your success. Tutoring Services offers a wide variety of supports and resources to help you reach your academic goals. 

Volunteer peer tutoring

Interested in becoming a volunteer peer tutor and having your volunteer work recognized? We are currently accepting applications for up to 20 volunteer tutors. 

What does a volunteer peer tutor do?

As a volunteer peer tutor, you will assist your tutees in understanding course material, which will help them become more independent learners. You must have an 'A' grade or higher in the courses you wish to tutor. Through peer tutoring, you will give your tutees the individual and specialized attention that a student may need in order to accommodate their learning.

Volunteer peer tutors are eligible for credit through the SAIT Co-Curricular Record.

Become a CCR peer tutor

CCR peer tutors must meet the following requirements:

  • enrolled in 2nd year (or higher) of your current program
  • overall GPA of 3.6 or above and 'A' grade in the courses you wish to tutor
  • you must have instructor or academic chair endorsement
  • excellent communication skills and a keen interest in helping others
  • multitasking and organizational skills; leadership qualities
  • clear and articulate command of the English language
  • willing to work with any student in need of assistance
  • complete PREP 100 either in person or online (year-round online registration available)
  • aware that this is a co-curricular activity — not a paid position

If you are interested in this opportunity and meet the requirements above, apply to be a volunteer peer tutor. Depending on demand and availability, you will be matched with a tutee who requires your help. 

One-on-one tutoring

Connect with a tutor through the SAIT Tutor Registry — a list of available peers and professionals who have been checked to ensure qualification in their field or subject area. 

Tutors set their own availability and hourly rates* and will work with you to schedule sessions and arrange payments. The registry is updated weekly with new tutors and schedules. 

* SAIT does not employ tutors through the tutor registry. Tutors are subject to availability and we cannot guarantee that there will be tutors available for every subject area. 

As part of our new CCR program, volunteer peer tutors may also be available for your subject area. Submit a request for a volunteer peer tutor and get the one-on-one help you need — for free!

MATH 123 Mathematics refresher course

Before you start your full-time program at SAIT, get ready with MATH 123. This free mathematics refresher course will boost your mathematical skills, remind you of the basics and get you ready for calculus. This course is geared towards students expecting to take MATH 237 or MATH 238 as part of their program. 

Topics include a review of algebraic equations, geometry, functions and graphs, trigonometric functions, factoring and fractions, quadratic equations, exponents and radicals, exponential and logarithmic functions, additional types of equations and systems of equations, equations of a higher degree, variation, additional topics of trigonometry, plane analytic geometry and transcendental functions.

Take the SAIT Pre-Calculus Self-Diagnostic test. If you score less than 70%, we strongly recommend that you take MATH 123.
