Requesting a tutor: 4 easy steps

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

  2. Email the completed, signed forms (Tutee Request Form and Tutee Agreement) to sfs@dal.ca

  3. Make a virtual 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 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 to our office, using DalCard by giving us written explicit permission to redeem the money from your DalCard.

*Please never pay the tutors directly!*

Money can be easily loaded on to your DalCard by using the online DalCard service. Once we're back on campus, money can also be loaded from many on-campus vendors. 

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 pay the fees 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.
