Our Peer Tutoring program is here for you!
The Peer Tutoring program is developed to help students who require additional time and understanding in a specific subject area. Through peer tutoring, a student who has completed and excelled in a course helps a student experiencing difficulties in that same course. This program is not intended to replace classroom time, but to assist in clarification of subject material.
I need a Peer Tutor
College can be a demanding experience and may pose many challenges that you haven’t faced before. The Peer Tutoring program is here to help you! With a Tutor, you may learn better study habits in order to be academically successful. You must understand that your Tutor will help to explain the course content in simplified terms, but that you will 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 reviewing your material at the same time. You will be paid $11.00 – $13.50 per hour (depending on your year), up to 12 hours per week, as a Tutor! Many students have seen their marks go up as a result of being a Peer Tutor. In addition, time spent in your tutoring sessions can be recorded on your Co-Curricular Record.
