Last Day to Request a Tutor: Friday, April 3, 2020

Peer Tutoring Services provide individual or small-group tutoring for most courses. Tutors meet with students to

  • Examine Student Learning Strategies
  • Review Information
  • Discuss Content of Reading Assignments
  • Work through Examples of Homework Problems

Peer tutors have excellent academic records and are always recommended by faculty to assure reliable assistance. They are trained in tutoring techniques and work under the supervision of the Peer Tutor Coordinator .
 
To request a tutor, please click on the link above, "Request a Peer Tutor."  Assigning a peer tutor may take up to ten working days. Once the match-up is made, the time for tutoring sessions is arranged between the peer tutor and student. Peer tutors are not guaranteed for courses that offer organized study groups or drop-in tutoring.
 
Students who are interested in becoming a peer tutor require a faculty referral of that specific department.
