Apply to be a Tutor with the Schwab Learning Center

Hiring Qualified Tutors

The SLC hires and trains tutors who provide individual tutoring for up to four hours per week per student for students with learning differences and/or ADHD.  Tutors are generally graduate students with an academic background that matches the class in which the student needs assistance. Tutors are trained to understand and recognize different learning styles, and offer multiple strategies to help students. Session dates and times are arranged by the student directly with his or her assigned tutor.

The Schwab Learning Center is looking to hire tutors who will work virtually 1:1 with Stanford students over the quarter to help them master content for a specific course. Must be enrolled as a Stanford student, meaning a registered student, a student taking a leave of absence for one quarter, and/or flex term.


  • GPA of 3.5 or higher

  • Must be able to dedicate up to 5 hrs/wk for tutoring

  • Hiring all subject areas, but seeking CS, Math, Stats, Physics, Chem, MS&E, and Econ expertise 

  • Preferably rising Juniors and Seniors and Graduate students

  • Pay rate is $30/hr


Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to hire students who will be working/living outside the United States at this time.
