Volunteer as a peer tutor
Use your knowledge and expertise to help a fellow student in need of tutoring support — volunteer as a peer tutor. You must have an 'A' grade or higher in the course(s) you wish to tutor. Volunteer peer tutors will be matched with a peer requiring assistance based on demand.
Volunteer peer tutoring is an approved Co-Curricular Record activity and an unpaid opportunity.
Hire a tutor
Connect with a tutor through SAIT's tutor registry — a list of qualified peer and professional tutors. These tutors set their own availability and hourly rates and will work with you directly to schedule sessions and arrange payment.
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.
Join the tutor registry as a tutor for hire
Join SAIT's tutor registry as either a peer or a professional tutor. As a tutor on the registry, you will set your own availability and hourly rates, and you’ll be responsible for managing your own schedule and arranging payments.
