Access the Student Tutor program

Students looking for academic assistance have access to the Student Tutoring program, which is staffed by current UPEI students.

Are you having difficulty with a certain subject? Do you require course material explained in an alternate way? Do you need help with organization and time management? If so, a tutor can help you reach your academic potential and goals.

Becoming a tutor:

Our tutors are current or past students of the University of Prince Edward Island, or may be community members, who provide independent services.

The tutors are not employees, contractors, or agents of UPEI. Student Affairs is simply facilitating, providing access, and checking the credentials of qualified tutors. It is our goal to provide quality tutors by verifying that the following specific criteria are met before we approve them for inclusion on our searchable bank:

  • Must have a minimum academic average of 80 percent in courses you wish to tutor
  • Must have excellent communication skills
  • Must be able to work with a variety of learning styles
  • Must have an interest in teaching
  • Must be highly motivated, flexible, and reliable

The Student Affairs tutor bank standards are taken seriously and all applications, regardless of their degree level need to provide documentation clearly demonstrating their level of mastery in the field(s) they wish to tutor. Student Affairs asks for an updated resume, a reference letter from a UPEI professor, and a degree audit (copy) or transcripts.

Documentation needed to apply:

  • Transcripts(unofficial)
  • Letter of recommendation from professor
  • List of courses you want to tutor
  • Resume/CV

If you are looking to become a tutor, please email tutorbank@upei.ca with the above mentioned items.
