What Are Peer Tutors and How Can They Help You?

These tutors are here to lend a helping hand to assist you in comprehending and mastering your coursework. Whether you're struggling with homework assignments, seeking clarification on key concepts, or looking for effective study strategies, our tutors are your dedicated partners in success. 

How to Connect with a Peer Tutor 

Tutoring is available in-person and virtually during the Peer Tutors designated drop-in hours. Visit Microsoft Teams Bookings to check out availability and the courses with which they are helping students.

How to Best Prepare For Your Session  

  • Have Your Material Ready: Our tutors may need to reference textbooks and class notes during the session. Therefore, it's essential to have your course materials on hand, including your textbook and class
  • Identify Your Goals: Before your session, take a moment to reflect on what specific challenges or topics you'd like to address with your peer tutor. This will help streamline your session and make it more tailored to your needs. 
  • Ask Questions: Don't hesitate to ask questions and seek clarification during your tutoring session. Our peer tutors are here to assist you, and no question is too big or small. 

Psych Tutor Guidelines:  

  • The tutors CANNOT simply answer your homework problems for you. The tutors will guide you through the problem by suggesting things to try or asking you questions. 
  • Do not give a list of homework problems for tutors to solve for you. Not following this guideline might constitute in some cases a violation of the Honor Code. 
  • Please clearly state the problem(s) you are trying to solve and provide as much context as possible, so the tutors can fully understand your questions and provide the most help to you.
