The Application Process
The application process includes multiple phases. First, candidates must submit the appropriate application, which can be found at the bottom of this page. Second, pending a review of the application and Center staffing needs, candidates will be invited to interview for the position, after which they may also be required to complete a subject-specific skills assessment.

To qualify for a tutoring position, candidates must have a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least a 3.2, must meet the specific requirements for the subject (Detailed Here), and must be able to communicate effectively.
