Become a Tutor

CAE tutor session

Working as a tutor for the Center for Academic Enrichment is a great option for many talented UNH Manchester students. As a tutor, you:

  • Meet and help your fellow UNH Manchester students
  • Earn competitive hourly pay that rises with increased levels of training and certification
  • Build your resume for work in any field
  • Receive nationally recognized College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) training
  • Improve your own academic skills
  • Receive close mentoring and build a network with CAE professional staff and tutors

Working as a tutor was an incredibly valuable experience; not only did it help my peers reinforce their knowledge, but it helped reinforce mine; it truly brought me to the apex of learning.

  • Ask a UNH Manchester faculty member member who is familiar with your skills and the content area to recommend you; they can do so by contacting the CAE.
