What happens in a tutoring session?

  • Peer tutors help students learn course concepts and methods of analysis by providing opportunities for hands-on practice. They work with students to develop or enhance key strategies for academic success, such as time management, critical reading, and how to set and achieve goals.

Who are the peer tutors?

  • Peer tutors are currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students who have demonstrated mastery of course and academic skills. They are selected based on applications, faculty recommendation, and interviews.
