Peer Math Tutoring


SUMO works with the Stanford math department to provide peer tutoring services for a number of introductory math classes, specifically MATH 19, 20, 21, 51, 52, 53, and 104. The peer tutors are available to answer any questions you have about the material and homework in these classes.

Peer tutoring hours are drop-in; just show up and our tutors will help you out. Feel free to come and work on your homework even if you don't have any specific questions. Many students work on their homework during tutoring, asking questions if they encounter difficulties.

Please note that this program is not aimed towards Math 60CM/DM students. For students in higher level math classes, the math department offers other resources.

Becoming a Tutor

If you are interested in becoming a peer math tutor, we hire new tutors at the start of Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarter of each academic year (if there are available positions). Tutors should be able to help students with either all three classes of the MATH 19/20/21 series and MATH 51, all three classes of the MATH 50s series, or MATH 104/113.

If there are any open positions for the quarter, the application for new tutors will be sent to the SUMO mailing list in the first week of classes. Please join the mailing list to be notified of these opportunities. If you have any further questions about tutoring or the application, please contact the coordinator, Jake Hofgard (whofgard at
