Be a Tutor

The Academic Resource Center connects students who are competent in a specific subject with students who have requested additional assistance in that area. Tutor applicants must be available to work with the student(s) weekly.

You can apply to be a tutor by downloading and filling out our Tutor Application. Please e-mail the application to us at tutoring@whitman.edu or drop it by the Academic Resource Center in Memorial 325. The application will probably take less than 10 minutes to fill out.

Once we receive your application, we will schedule a time for you to meet with Mary Claire Gegen, Academic Resources Program Coordinator, for a brief individualized orientation to the Tutor Program. Thanks so much for applying to be a tutor!
