Peer Tutoring

How Can a Peer Tutor Help Your Students?

The Peer Tutoring Program provides an opportunity for students to get course-specific help from an experienced peer who has completed and excelled in the course. Tutors can review material covered in class, help prepare for exams, or assist with learning strategies to succeed.

Any student, in any program, can utilize this service to improve their grades or feel more confident with course material.

Support is offered in-person and online to meet the needs of students...and it's free!

Promote the Peer Tutoring Program in your Classes

Everyone can benefit from additional support. Encourage students to use this service right from the start:

  • Add a link to the Peer Tutoring site in Blackboard.
  • Post a flyer in your BB classroom; email us to request a specialized flyer for your course.
  • Invite a tutor to your class to introduce themselves and make a quick announcement.

Peer Tutors will help students with their studies by reviewing and clarifying material covered in class, studying for an upcoming test, or preparing for an exam. Students can make appointments throughout the term as needed. 

Recommend a Student!

Do you have a student in your course who is succeeding academically? Would they be a good fit to help other students succeed next term?

Faculty may refer strong students to become Peer Tutors. It is a great opportunity for students to get paid for sharing their knowledge and helping others. If you would like to recommend a student, please email us...and we'll do the rest!

We cannot guarantee a tutor will be available for every course. Your assistance in recruiting tutors is always appreciated.

**Hiring is subject to demand.

Take Advantage of All Academic Supports

For additional help, students can attend the Academic Drop-In sessions at both campuses! Facilitators are available in-person and online to support students in Math, Science, Writing and ESL. Hours available Monday to Friday...and students can drop-in as often as they like!
