Find and hire a Tutor

Use TMU Tutor Match to find the tutor that is right for you. The system will check for tutors that can help you with your current or near-future coursework. It is up to you to contact these potential tutors and establish a follow-up plan: where, when, and how to meet, how much you will pay them and when, and any other relevant details.


TMU Tutor Match tutors are not employed by Toronto Metropolitan University or by Student Life & Learning Support (SLLS). Neither Toronto Metropolitan  University nor SLLS become involved in payment for services.

While SLLS does provide tutor training to all TMU Tutor Match tutors, SLLS does not interview, supervise, or evaluate tutors in any way. Consequently, we cannot guarantee the quality of tutoring or academic outcome(s). A positive tutoring experience depends on a tutee finding an appropriate tutor to match their learning style.
