About the Service Book a Session Become a Tutor Frequently Asked Questions 

UF Community Tutoring offers one-on-one tutoring to University of Florida students and the local community.  Please note that Tutors on Tutor Matching Service (TMS) do not work for the University of Florida and are self-hired private contractors. The University of Florida does not employ nor endorse the TMS tutors.  However, each tutor appearing on the University of Florida page has had a criminal background check, confirmed connection to UF (student, alumni, etc.) and has completed online tutor training.  The service is provided as an opportunity for additional tutoring option. Each participant will enter into an exclusive contract between themselves, Tutor Matching Service (TMS), and the private tutor.  Students and family members are urged to read and follow the TMS terms of service carefully in order to get the best experience.
