If you’d like to help other students by passing on your skills and experience, you can apply to become an ITAS tutor. More information can be found in the ITAS tutor guidelines (pdf, 285KB).
Generally, you will need to be in at least your third year of your degree. Students will be matched with tutors who are two years or more ahead of them in their studies.
You also need to have achieved a distinction grade or above for the unit of study or topics you would like to tutor.
You’ll need to provide information on your academic or professional qualifications, a copy of your resume and academic transcripts, and details on the subject areas where you feel qualified to provide tutoring.
Complete the online ITAS tutor application.
Your application will be assessed and, if approved, you will be added to our tutor database.
When a student applies for tutoring, we will match them with a suitable tutor. If you are selected, the student will be given your contact details so they can arrange a time for your tutoring sessions.
If you’re contracted to work as an ITAS tutor, you will also be invited to attend paid teaching development and cultural competence training workshops.
We will provide you with a contract outlining the subjects you will provide tutoring for, the pay rates and contract dates. It will allow for up to two hours of tutoring per week for each unit of study.
Sign and return your contract as soon as possible, as you can only be paid for tutoring after your contract has been processed.
You will need a new contract for each semester that you provide tutoring (unless you are providing tutoring for a year-long unit of study).
When you submit your first pay claim, you also need to submit a tutor work program created with your student.
