Apply to be a Tutor

Responsibilities for Tutors

Tutors must be registered undergraduate or graduate students at Johns Hopkins University.

Tutors work on course-specific materials with students currently enrolled in the course(s). Once a tutoring assignment is given, the tutor must commit to leading his or her group(s) for the duration of the semester, including reading period before final exams.

Tutors are responsible for monitoring their assigned course syllabi and must maintain open communication with course faculty. All tutors must attend training before receiving their assignments.


All tutoring is offered in group format, so tutors must be comfortable and capable leading groups of up to 6 students.

To be eligible to tutor, a student must also have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and have earned an “A” in the specific JHU course being tutored. (Exceptions may be possible on a case-by-case basis).

Tutors must be able to communicate effectively and should have a mature, professional demeanor.
