Peer Tutoring: Need a Tutor

Peer Tutoring information for Niagara College Community.

How Can a Peer Tutor Help You Online?

Meeting with a Peer Tutor online provides an opportunity for you to get clarification on challenging course material. Your tutor will help explain course content in simplified terms, but you will be required to do all course work on your own. Tutors will not proofread or do your homework for you.

Students can independently make appointments, up to 5 hours per week, with approved tutors. Check out the details below to register, book appointments and connect with your tutor online. Video and audio are required for online appointments.

Recruiting Tutors

The Peer Tutoring program relies on NC students to apply as tutors. Consequently, we cannot guarantee Tutors will be available for all courses.

Please notify the Peer Tutoring Coordinators of any courses not found in the schedule. Further recruitment efforts may be required and can take time.

We will do our best to find tutors in a timely manner.

Fall Term Update

If you need help with your courses, peer tutoring online appointments for the Fall term will begin the second week of classes.  Appointments can be booked online up to one week in advance.

Limited appointments will be available at the start of the term but we will add courses when possible. Appointment availability is dependent on Peer Tutor applicants for the term so we cannot guarantee tutors will be available for all courses. Please notify the Peer Tutoring Coordinator if a tutor is not available for your course.

With the return to campus for some programs in September, in-person appointments may be added as required. Schedule is subject to change. Check back for more details.
