Tutor Matching Services Logo with a red A plus

Sometimes you want to work with a private tutor. Tutor Matching Services can help you access SPU faculty-recommended subject tutors. You can also choose to work with tutors from other universities. Hourly rates range from $15-$25 per hour. Some students find they only need 1 or 2 sessions; others prefer a weekly appointment. To learn more: 

  1. Go to Tutor Matching Service.
  2. Browse through the list for peer tutors from SPU and other colleges/universities.
  3. Sort by price, subject, or zip code.
  4. Find a date and time to book a tutor.
  5. Pay via credit card.

By using the Tutor Matching Service website, you will:

  • Connect with tutors who are SPU students as well as students from other universities.
  • Find tutors who have been recommended by SPU faculty based on their class performance. (Look for the “Faculty Recommended” badge and the  next to the course on the Tutor Profile.)  
    Note: These students are not employed or trained by SPU.
