#What is it?
The Peer Tutor service connects UTS students who need help with a subject with students who have achieved a credit, distinction or high distinction final result in the same subject and are willing to help other students. Peer Tutoring offers affordable private tutoring to UTS students.
#Need a Peer Tutor?
Are you struggling with a subject and think you could benefit from some private tutoring? We may have someone who can help you. Most tutors charge a minimum of $25 per hour, paid directly to the tutor by the student during each lesson. Please ensure the hourly rate is agreed upon BEFORE tutoring occurs.

#Peer Tutoring Online
In light of current University and health guidelines we recommend that all Peer Tutoring is conducted online. There are a number of online platforms that could be used. Two University-supported platforms that are suitable for tutoring online are Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Both Zoom and Microsoft Teams have a number of additional features that support tutoring remotely, such as the ability to schedule meetings, chat options and whiteboards. All UTS students and staff have access to these programs and, by using a University-supported platform, students can contact UTS IT for support. Here are some UTS links about how to use Zoom:
The Peer Tutor and student should discuss the most appropriate platform for their tutoring sessions based on the learning requirements and access of each at the time of booking.
How can payment be made?
Payment can be made by electronic funds transfer during the tutoring session. We recommend that tutors request the student present a screen shot of electronic payment during the tutoring session. This allows the tutor to see that the payment has been made while the student is in their tutoring session. Peer Tutors and students should discuss payment, including payment method, at the time of booking the first session.
