  • Tutoring Program

    Program Description:

    Peer tutors provide individual and small group tutoring sessions in subjects the tutor has attained a B grade or above. The Peer Tutor facilitates learning as a guide and coach to assist the student to become a successful, independent learner.  Peer tutors integrate effective study and learning strategies to maximize the tutee’s potential for academic progress. Peer Tutors are also expected to refer students to other appropriate university resources as needed.

    Purpose of the Tutoring Program

    To help other students and reinforce your own skills and understanding. Tutoring involves a real commitment to learning and scheduling. The process of tutoring will be fun and rewarding when both the tutor and the fellow student are serious in their endeavors and make the appropriate personal commitment. 

    Tutoring offers reinforcement and support outside the traditional classroom setting for students who are having difficulty in understanding the course content. It also helps students realize that someone cares about their personal and academic goals. As you know, we all learn through different styles and at different rates. There is no one method of learning that is "best." Most success will be found with methods that you and your fellow student will develop while working together.
