Peer Tutors in the Academic Resource Hub enjoy a flexible schedule, targeted professional development, and a means to make extra money while helping their fellow students. Peer tutors can choose to tutor one course, or as many as five. Ideally, they will have taken the course they intend to tutor at Lafayette and have earned a ‘B’ or better. We hire students who have been awarded Federal Work Study as part of their financial aid package, as well as any other student who is eligible to work in the United States.

Application

New and returning Peer Tutors must complete an application (link below) providing availability and course competencies.
