TUTOR MATCH? Who, What, Why, Where, When?



Tutor Match allows you to schedule tutoring appointments with Rasmussen University peer tutors who are all current students. Online and on-campus modalities, as well as individual or group appointments, are subject to availability. 

Click here to connect to Tutor Match within the Tutoring Platform (Brainfuse).


The College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) certifies tutoring programs across the country. They have certified Rasmussen University’s training for both level 1 and level 2, meaning that tutors can now become certified or certified advanced tutors depending on how many hours of training and work they complete. This means Rasmussen’s tutors are even better prepared to assist students (and better prepared to feature their experience on their resumes!)
