How do I sign up to become a private tutor?

Tutor Matching Services

  1. Go to

  2. Select “login/sign up” in the upper right corner of the website.

  3. Sign up for a TMS account using your SPU email address and a password of your choosing. You will need to use this login information every time you use the TMS account.

  4. Follow the sign-up process. This includes setting up you availability calendar, but tutors are able to come back and edit this information at any time. Tutors should also download and log in to the TMS app to complete their sign up.

  5. At this time, tutors should select "on-line" tutoring and not "in-person" tutoring as many students will be living away from campus and to observe social distancing requirements.
