Prospective Tutors

How can I become a tutor?

  • Complete the online Tutor Application *new*
  • Provide two Tutor Recommendation forms from faculty to be mailed or emailed to asc@montclair.edu
  • Provide ASC with unofficial transcript from OTHER attended colleges/universities

Upon completion of all of the above if the ASC is hiring we will arrange for a prospective tutor interview

To obtain a Tutor Application and Tutor Recommendation Form.

When is the ASC Hiring?

The ASC generally hires the start and end of the semesters with our largest group of hiring happening prior to the Fall Semester. We do however collect applications on a rolling basis and will reach out when a) all of the requirements above are met, and b) we have a need that you match.

Please be aware, while there are general trends in the subjects we hire for, every semester has different needs based on who is already employed with us and what students are requesting. We often all have certain needs to fill in the middle of the semester too and keep all applications on file until a student requests otherwise or they graduate. 

If you would like to check on your application, you can email grunseicht@montclair.edu.
