Hire a Tutor
*New* In the summer of 2014, Student Learning Services developed and launched a new database where tutors could apply to be listed. The application process includes an faculty endorsment as well as allowing the administrators of the system to access the tutor's transcripts. www.usask.ca/hireatutor
Alternatively, subject-specific tutor listings are distributed across student societies, colleges, and departments. The management of these lists and the credentials required for joining the tutor listing is maintained by each individual unit. Please note that most of the tutor directories do not require that tutors have any formal credentials or minimal qualifications for being included on the listing. To view these lists, click on the green tab marked "Colleges and Departments" above.
USSU Tutor Registry
This is likely the most extensive and popular tutor listings on campus. It is maintained by the USSU and identifies tutors for almost any subject. To search for a tutor in your specific subject area, click the button that says 'Search the Tutor Registry' and choose the subjects that you are looking for and click the 'Search' button.
Aboriginal Students' Centre
The Aboriginal Students’ Centre has an on-site SLS Writing Help Tutor. Specific days and times can vary from term to term. They also invite other tutors for a few other subjects, such as math to their centre. Their Facebook page is a great way to keep informed about their programming, as well as their weekly student newsletter via email.
Colleges and Departments
Another way to look for tutors is to contact department offices or department student societies directly. You can either go there in person, or phone the offices. Explain that you are looking for a tutor, and that you are wondering if they have any suggestions for people to contact.
College of Arts and Science
Some departments have web pages set up with tutor information:
http://homepage.usask.ca/~yee933/tutor.htm - maintained by the Chemistry Science Students' Society.
The Department of Languages and Linguistics - http://artsandscience.usask.ca/languages - keeps a tutor list. Please contact the Department.

Pharmacy and Nutrition
The college puts on a 'Critical Skills Tutorial Session' about three weeks before the Critical Skills essay. They go over some past essay questions. It lasts about 1.5-2 hours. If you pay attention, you can get a good idea of what the college is looking for in the essay. If you have applied, the college will send you an email informing you of when and where this happens. SLS Writing Help tutors can give you an idea of how you are doing with your practice answers.
