PhD students in the School of Mathematics are expected to undetake tutoring of our undergraduate students.   Payment for tutoring is by  Guaranteed Hours Contract (of employment).  We believe that tutoring is an important part of the PhD experience and that it helps PhD students to develop their skills and enhance their experience.
