Due to this pandemic, the steps for becoming a tutor has changed. If you are interested in becoming a specific subject tutor, like Biology tutor, you should email the Biology department or your Biology professor for detailed information.

So just contact the professor or the department officer for more details cause for different subjects, the requirement are slightly different.
