Specifically, we seek tutors for our high-demand subjects, including: math (particularly Calculus II and below), physics, statistics, chemistry, biology, computer science, economics, accounting, and writing.

- received “A” grade(s) in the course(s) in which they hope to tutor
- Competency equivalents (AP Exam scores of 4 or higher, comparable CLEP Exam scores, transfer credit, etc.) are also accepted
