Apply to Become a Tutor

The Barnard Dean's Office  continually seeks current Barnard students to serve as tutors in our Peer Learning Program. Peer Tutors are paid $16.50/hour, for anywhere between one and two hours per week (depending on your availability and demand for tutors in your area), to meet in small groups of no more than three students or individually who have requested a tutor for support in a particular class. Tutors are also paid for approximately one hour per month of training/in-service.

Subjects where tutors are most in demand include: Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Foreign Languages, and Physics.  Other subjects may also be needed depending on student requests, so you are encouraged to apply even if the subject you want to tutor does not appear on this list.


  • A grade of B+ or above in the Barnard course(s) (or equivalent) for which you wish to tutor
  • A minimum GPA of 3.0
  • Empathy, patience, clarity, and kindness
  • Commitment to academic integrity
  • Good academic and disciplinary standing in the College
  • Senior, Junior, Sophomore, or second-semester First-Year status
  • Experience as a peer tutor preferred but not required
