Our Peer Tutoring program is here for you!
Funding for Peer Tutoring is provided through Student Activity Fees paid as part of your tuition and the International Education Department-that means you don’t need to pay anything extra for a Peer Tutor!
Peer Tutoring Services is now part of the Libraries + Learning Commons. The below links will soon be updated with new information as Peer Tutoring is no longer part of the Centre for Student Engagement and Leadership.
Peer Tutoring offers the opportunity to:
- be matched with a Peer Tutor to help you meet your learning goals, OR
- become a Peer Tutor for another student in the same course that you are taking.
I need a Peer Tutor
Why you might need a peer tutor:
- You are temporarily confused about your course’s subject matter.
- You’ve failed an assignment or are at the risk of failing.
- You’re not meeting the graduation requirements of 50% per course and/or 60% grade point average (GPA).
A tutor will help to explain your course content in simplified terms, but you’ll be required to do preparation work on your own. Your tutor will not proof your work nor do your homework for you.
I want to become a Peer Tutor
By becoming a tutor, you can make extra money during the semester while constantly reviewing your material at the same time. Many students have seen their marks go up as a result of being a Peer Tutor.
Did you know?
Becoming a Peer Tutor can not only provide extra income, but your service hours can be tracked on your Co-Curricular Record as well. Upon graduation you will receive an Official NC Co-Curricular Record document that you can bring with you to job interviews.
