Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutors can help you achieve your academic goals in a specific class. Peer Tutors can help you understand assignments, explain the key concepts of course materials, offer feedback and encouragement, and share appropriate resources. Tutoring sessions are individual, weekly, and one-hour long.
