  • Be recommended by a professor that teaches at least one of the courses that the SRC tutors
  • Commit to 6-10 hours per week of tutoring
  • Have evidence of professionalism by being organized, punctual, and reliable
  • Have evidence of a growth mindset and ability to create a positive learning environment for students

To apply, you must submit a cover letter to the SRC Coordinator (Peyton Schrag; pschrag@lakeforest.edu) detailing your interest and qualifications for the position.
