Academic Tutoring and Coaching
About Tutoring and Coaching
Free peer-to-peer tutoring is available in many subjects for current Westminster students. Tutors can help you with specific questions or general knowledge on a topic and are a great option for you to get the one-on-one support you need throughout your educational experience.
Tutors are fellow students (recommended by professors) who have excelled in what they are tutoring for that are available in the fall, spring, and summer semesters at various hours depending on the tutoring center.

Westminster needs effective, patient, and timely communicators who have excelled in courses to serve as tutors, supplementing classroom instruction with individual study sessions and guiding students to appropriate resources and faculty when tutoring is insufficient. Tutoring is typically an ongoing commitment throughout the semester and you must meet with tutees on campus. Tutors are paid $9.50 an hour. You must have demonstrated competency in the course(s) you wish to tutor for through either course completion with an above-average grade or the recommendation of a course’s professor.
