If you are looking for assistance in understanding specific course content and assignments, or preparing for tests and exams, our tutors are able to help. We can match you to an appropriate tutor in your field of study.

Requesting a tutor: 4 easy steps

  1. Read, complete and sign the Tutee Request Form and the Tutee Agreement/Code of Ethics

  2. Drop off the signed forms (Tutee Request Form and Tutee Agreement) to our office OR scan and email them to sfs@dal.ca

  3. Make an appointment for a BRIEF study skills assessment, which needs to take place BEFORE you are matched with a tutor

  4. Pay the required fees - $20/hr plus a one-time $5 admin fee (as stated in the tutee ethics agreement and the tutoring constitution) in SUB 426  IN ADVANCE OF your tutoring appointments. Once you pay, you will then be matched with a tutor within 2 business days.

Fees ($20/hr. plus a one-time admin fee of $5) should be paid in the Student Union Building (SUB), Room 426, using DalCard. Money can be easily put on your DalCard from many on-campus vendors. Money can also be loaded on your DalCard online.

Please Note:
Once you initially submit your tutoring paperwork and do your assessment, there is no need to follow this procedure every time you require a new tutor in the future. Simply email sfs@dal.ca to find out if we have a tutor in your requested course, and if there is then go to SUB 426 to pay in advance. You will then be matched with a tutor.

All rules and regulations for tutoring can be found in detail in the Tutoring Constitution.
