A peer tutor is a tutor who is also an undergraduate student.  Most of our peer tutors are John Jay students, but we also hire qualified peer tutors from other local colleges. For a full job description, minimum qualifications, and other general information about becoming a peer tutor, please download our peer tutor brochure using the link below.  Applicants for the position of peer tutor must submit a completed application form, at least one faculty recommendation, and copies of all undergraduate transcripts (and graduate, if applicable).  Unofficial copies are fine.  You may download the application and recommendation forms by clicking the links below, or stop by the MSRC to pick up paper copies.
