Finding a student tutor

UNB Saint John

To help students who need additional assistance with courses, we have compiled the following list of undergraduates who have expressed interest in providing tutoring services for the 2023-24 academic year. Students seeking this assistance pay an hourly rate to the tutor that is negotiated between the tutor and the student, which is typically in the range of $15-$25.

Students should agree on hours, fees, and method of payment with the tutor prior to the first meeting. All meetings should take place online (e.g., via Microsoft Teams) or in person at a safe and public location.


The University of New Brunswick has verified that each tutor has either completed the course that they would like to assist with and received a final grade of B+ or higher, or they are a graduate student who has successfully completed comparable courses at another institution. However, UNB does not provide any guarantee as to the quality of services or any academic outcomes. Furthermore, this list should not be considered as an endorsement of these tutors, who have not been vetted in any way beyond the grade verification by the University of New Brunswick.

Students should make use of these tutoring resources at their discretion.

Tutors are not employees or agents of the University of New Brunswick. The relationship is solely between the tutor and the student. All legal responsibilities for that relationship (such as tax reporting, obtaining payments, and other legal requirements) are the sole responsibility of the tutor and student.

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 the wealth 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 $15-$25/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. If 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.
