What is Tutoring?

A peer tutor is a student who:

  • Possesses experience and knowledge in a subject area, exceptional study skills, and is able to use that experience and knowledge to guide others.  

  • Teaches other students how to learn and creates a comfortable, supportive atmosphere for practicing those skills.

 

Tutors will help you:

  • Model appropriate learning strategies/study skills

  • Interpret and clarify specific topic concepts

  • Identify other resources such as prerequisite texts and courses.

  • Review past exams to improve preparation for future exams. 

 

 Tutors will not be able to:

  • Help students cram for tests

  • Correct or help with graded assignments

  • Reenact the professor's lecture

  • Provide remediation for students who do not have the appropriate background for the course in which they are enrolled
