Become a Peer Tutor

What Is a Peer Tutor?

Peer tutors provide subject-specific support for students seeking guidance with their academic work. For instance, a math student can meet with a peer tutor to work through difficult concepts or problem sets. Similarly, a psychology student struggling with readings can meet with a tutor to discuss theories. Tutoring is usually one-on-one, but you may have occasional group sessions.

Tutors work collaboratively with faculty and staff to ensure each student receives holistic support. They aim to personalize instruction for their students, promote independent learning, and help students express their ideas and concepts. Peer tutors never do the work for the student; rather, they offer support and guidance. At all times tutors maintain confidentiality and are respectful and sensitive to individual differences.
