Subject Tutoring

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.

Peer tutoring is currently available at the introductory level in the following subjects:

  • Business and Management: Stats for Social Science, Corporate Finance, Accounting 
  • Chemistry: Chemistry  153, 232, 253, 254
  • Computer Science: Most 100 level courses
  • Economics: 102, 112
