The MSRC accepts applications year-round, but we typically interview only twice per year, in December and July.  For application instructions, please see below.  Qualified applicants will be contacted via email to schedule a diagnostic exam and interview. 


  • Be a currently enrolled John Jay undergraduate or graduate student with sophomore standing or higher
  • Have received a grade of at least A- in the course(s) you wish to tutor.
  • Have an overall GPA of at least 3.0.
  • Be dependable, punctual, and self-motivated. Possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
  • Be able to work at least 4 hours per week consistently throughout the semester.  Be available to attend paid training and staff meetings.
