Hire a tutor

Connect with a tutor through the SAIT Tutor Registry — a list of available peer and professional tutors 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 directly to schedule sessions and arrange payments.

Note: SAIT does not employ tutors through this registry. SAIT does not require tutors to provide criminal record checks and cannot guarantee personal character. It is always recommended you meet your tutor in a public place.
