USD Undergraduates: Register to Tutor Kids in a Local School!

Are you a fulltime undergraduate student currently registered for less than 18 units? Register for USD’s Southeast San Diego Tutoring Program to intern in a local elementary or middle school where you can tutor children in basic reading, writing, and math. Tutors earn 1, 2, or 3 academic units per semester for 3, 6, or 9 hours of tutoring per week, respectively, for ten weeks during the semester (minimum 3 hours/week, 30 hours/semester). You decide the number of hours per week and the tutoring times that fit your schedule.


You only need to devote time to tutoring, reflect on your experiences, and feel the rewards of helping kids. In return, you gain:


  • Academic credit to speed you toward graduation
  • Valuable knowledge and experience working with children
  • Real life intern experience to further your career


You will FEEL GREAT making a difference in the lives of children who need your help.


Duties at the schools include tutoring children one-on-one or in small groups, assisting teachers with classroom activities, grading, and other tasks associated with a school environment. In addition, tutors keep a reflective journal (one page a week).


All undergraduates are welcome to register, regardless of major. Tutors must provide their own transportation, but all schools are only 5-11 miles from USD.


For details and to start your registration, email Dr. Tim Randell ( right away (before Friday, February 8th) with the times/days of your availability Monday thru Friday, 7am-5pm. (When planning your schedule, please allow at least a half hour before and after your regularly scheduled tutoring hours to travel to and from your other academic or work commitments.)
