Job description:

UMKC Tutors are strong UMKC students with at least a 3.0 overall GPA and B+ or better in the courses they tutor. They are dedicated to guiding each student through difficult material – from understanding big concepts to developing learning strategies and tools to help students retain information and solve problems on their own. Our tutors gain leadership, organization, and critical thinking skills, as well as hone their academic knowledge base and skills. Additionally, they form close relationships with faculty, UMKC staff, and fellow students. Tutors work 5-8 hours per week with pay starting at $12.30 per hour.
