Tutor Advertiser

The Tutor Advertiser is a Web–based service that allows a student to search for a private tutor or list him/herself as a private tutor. Only USU students are allowed to list as private tutors.


To list on the ARC Tutor Advertiser, a student must have at least a 3.2 USU GPA and earned at least a B+ in any course for which he or she wishes to advertise tutoring services. The ARC will screen postings for appropriateness and accuracy.

Excellent math tutorial videos are available online at KhanAcademy, covering topics from pre-algebra through linear algebra. Each 10-minute video covers a specific topic with clear explanations of concepts and example problems worked step-by-step.

Who are the Tutors?

All tutors who work for the Drop–in Math and Statistics program meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Currently enrolled at Utah State University as students in good standing
  • Completed through Math 2250 (or 2270/2280) and/or through Stats 3000 with a course grade of B+ or higher
  • Earned a cumulative gpa of 3.2 or higher
  • Demonstrated effective oral communication and interpersonal skills
  • Required to complete MGT 2160 (two credit tutor training course) during the first semester of tutoring. Completion of training results in Level II Advanced International Tutoring Program Certification through the College Reading and Learning Association.

Math and stats tutors typically represent majors in Math, Math/Stats Education, Statistics, or Engineering. While tutors must demonstrate subject competence, a decision to hire a tutor is heavily weighted on his/her demonstrated genuine enthusiasm to help students learn math and a sincere desire to develop effective tutoring strategies.

We are proud that many of the Center's tutors participate and succeed in a variety of challenging educational experiences, including the USU Putnam Exam Team, engineering conferences and competitions, and scholarship competitions. In fact, in 2003, two math tutors participated in the national Putnam Exam and helped USU place in the top 10% – 46th out of 476 teams. Time Magazine reported the Putnam Exam to be the most prestigious and difficult math test in the world.
