Tutor Matching Service (TMS)
While we always encourage students to utilize free ASC drop-in tutoring for courses that we support, we are excited to offer this new partnership with Tutor Matching Service (TMS) as an additional resource for Clemson students and the local community!
This is an online tutor list/marketplace that allows students to identify tutors for both online and in person tutoring sessions. To allow tutors more time to support students, TMS facilitates scheduling, booking, and payments. Tutors set their own rates, and clients pay directly through TMS with a credit card.
Clemson students who wish to register as tutors through TMS must complete an online training course before they may offer their tutoring services on a pay-per-session basis.
The Academic Success Center provides “badges” to those tutors who:
- have been trained by the ASC — "Clemson Certified Badge"*
- have met College of Reading and Learning Association certification requirements — "CRLA Trained Badge"
- have an overall high GPA — "High GPA Badge"
- are currently employed by the ASC — "ASC Employee Badge"*
- are listed by the ASC at no charge to Clemson students — "ASC Free Tutor"
Except for those tutors listed with the “ASC Employee” or “ASC Free Tutor” badges, the ASC in no way guarantees the quality of the tutors. Clemson University has no oversight over the tutors' services and does not make any recommendation regarding their appropriateness to tutor in the subject areas they have self-selected.

*Since they have already received extensive training, current ASC PAL/SI leaders are permitted to create a TMS profile and receive the ASC Employee badge without completing the online training course. The ASC reserves the right to revoke this badge if ASC-trained TMS tutors are found to have strayed from their training.
**The ASC Employee badge allows current tutors/PAL leaders to create a TMS profile without completing the online training course since they have already had extensive training. Tutors with this badge are not offering courses that are subsidized by the ASC. The ASC reserves the right to revoke this badge if ASC-trained TMS tutors are found to have strayed from their training.
