Fee Based TutoringTutors for these sessions will be current undergraduate and graduate students selected and trained by CLASS using best practices established by the College Reading and Learning Association, the national higher education organization that sets standards for tutor certification. If you are interested in applying to tutor with this program, see our student employment notice,  listed at

To assist students in obtaining tutoring in a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, we are partnering with Tutor Matching Services (TMS), a private company that works with universities including Purdue, Clemson, and NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering.

Tutoring will occur in several locations on campus, including Bird Library. Scheduling will occur online through the Syracuse page of the Tutor Matching Service website. The page is now up and running, and tutors are entering their schedules.

Tutors for this program work as independent contractors for TMS. Tutors set their own rates and are paid by TMS.

If you are interested in providing one-on-one tutoring for SU undergraduate or graduate students, you should apply through the Syracuse page of the Tutor Matching Service website.  Anyone who signs up to tutor Syracuse University students through TMS will undergo a review of her or his eligibility for certification based on grades earned in courses taken at SU and/or CRLA certification. CRLA certified tutors, tutors trained by CLASS, and tutors who demonstrate qualifications based on SU coursework will have their credentials listed on the Tutor Matching Service website.
