At first, we will be operating with a “skeleton crew”, so if what you’re looking for is listed in the schedule but no tutor is listed there yet, check back again in a day or two: As more tutors’ hiring paperwork is processed and as they solidify their schedules, the schedule below will fill in. We expect to be operating at full speed by the week of 9/17 or so.
We offer group and individual sessions with trained peer tutors
The College Learning Center offers drop-in peer tutoring in a variety of subjects, mostly in-person but with remote options where possible.
Students can access both peer and professional tutoring. Students with writing assignments in any class, in any subject, are welcome. The peer tutors are current students with interests across the curriculum and have successfully completed Introduction to Tutoring (EDUC 220) — find their tutoring schedule on the last page of the above-linked schedule. Tutoring in writing is usually one-on-one. Please refer to the link below to learn more about the professional writing tutoring available.
We offer peer support for a variety of subjects, usually at the introductory course level. No appointment is necessary.
Peer tutors are students who have been recommended by their professors for both their command of the subject material and their ability to work with other students. They then participate in multiple tutor training workshops each semester. They can support students working through assignments, reinforce challenging concepts, and offer alternate perspectives on material. The peer tutors’ goals are to model successful approaches to inquiry and learning, to support students as they learn to ask and answer productive questions.
