Looking for academic support?

Our Tutor Matching Program matches requests for tutoring with peer tutors.

How does it work?

The Tutor Matching Program matches requests for tutoring (for any McGill courses) with qualified peer tutors. We select from our bank of private tutors.

Once you submit your request for tutoring, we’ll get back to you with a list of available tutors and their contact information. Reach out to them directly to schedule your first session!

You can indicate any preferences in your request form (e.g. French speaker), and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.


$18.00 per hour for undergraduate tutors and $22.00 per hour for graduate tutors.

Student Accessibility and Achievement also works with subsidy partners from across campus to provide free tutoring to students. Click on subsidies below to learn more.
