Finding a student tutor

Student Services compiles a list of student tutors available during the academic year. Students may select the tutor from the list and contact them directly. Arrangements can then be made with the tutor regarding the date, location, time, and fee before the service is provided. We recommend setting an introductory meeting to ensure both parties are happy before starting a paid session.

Tutors are self-nominated and are not vetted by the university. Contact information for tutors is provided for the benefit of students seeking extra help in their courses. When hiring a tutor, check that they are able to assist with your particular course and concerns. Make sure to meet in a safe and public location and agree on hours and fees ahead of time.

*** Stay informed and learn how we can work together to keep safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Becoming a tutor

If you're interested in becoming a tutor, fill out and submit the tutor registration form.

All courses that you wish to tutor must have been completed with at least a B+.

Payment between involved parties (tutor and student) does not involve the University of New Brunswick.

For further assistance, questions, or concerns email sjacadcoach@unb.ca. The list will be updated as tutors become available.

Common questions

Before you hire a tutor, try campus resources available to you. If you find yourself struggling in a course, be sure to schedule an appointment with your professor. You can share your work and ask any questions you may have. In addition to a huge amount of information available online, you can also take advantage of these services available to you:


Review the list of tutors and contact the tutor offering services for your course. If there is no tutor listed for your course, you might want to contact the department or professor and see if they know of a senior student who might be available to help. Some students may also advertise on bulletin boards on-campus or on social media. When contacting tutors, be mindful of what personal information you share.


Rates are decided between the student and tutor, usually before the first paid session. In general, you can expect to pay $20/hour for introductory courses with increased rates for upper level courses. We recommend setting an introductory meeting to ensure both parties are happy before starting a paid session.


UNB Saint John cannot ensure the quality or compatibility of a tutor. We recommend an introductory meeting to confirm the arrangement will work before starting paid sessions. When problems arise address them early on. If the tutoring is not working out, either party has the right to cancel your sessions.


If you're interested in becoming a tutor, fill out and submit the tutor registration form. All courses that you wish to tutor must have been completed with at least a B+.


Effective tutors help students develop the skills required for a course as well as the skill of learning for themselves. This sometimes includes discussing work that will be graded. Tutors should never complete any part of coursework that is to be graded for the student. Discussing, asking open-ended questions, and sharing resources is okay -- telling the student what to write is not.


Student Services cannot guarantee tutors will receive work. Requests for tutors typically increase as the term progresses.
