Requesting a Tutor
There are a few changes to the tutoring program for the 2017/2018 year. After completing a request for peer tutoring, you will be given access to the GSBS tutoring Blackboard course. This will allow you to review a directory of tutors and which courses they tutor. You will no longer be assigned a tutor for each course. This will allow you to work with tutors who have similar availabilities and can cater best to your learning style. To request a tutor please email the Request for Peer Tutoring Form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Spring 2018 we have tutors for the following courses:
- Systems Physiology
- Biomedical Data Analysis-There is a new course director this semester. Your tutor may not be as familiar with the content for this course.
Becoming a GSBS Tutor
If you would like to be considered to work as a GSBS tutor, please review the documents below and submit a copy of your unofficial transcript (found in Self-Service Banner) to the GSBS office. You must circle or highlight the courses you would like to tutor. You must have earned an "A" or "A-" to be eligible to tutor that particular course. For Spring 2018, preference will be given to tutors who can tutor at least Systems Physiology (Formerly Fundamentals III) and/or Biomedical Data Analysis.
