Tutoring offers multiple benefits, including, of course, altruism (you help out your fellow students) and self-interest (you make some extra cash).  And tutoring also further develops and sharpens your disciplinary knowledge; in the process of tutoring, one's understanding of the discipline and field will become deeper and stronger. It also provides the opportunity to enhance tutoring-specific skill sets such as group facilitation, formulating clear and useful explanations, and making assessments. Skills which are applicable not only to teaching but also to medicine and other fields. 

We are seeking prospective tutors who: are accomplished, have an A- or above in the course(s) they want to support, and possess (and want to develop) skills essential for effective tutoring.  Students with a B+ in the course may be considered.
