Peer Tutoring-Academic Development - Carnegie Mellon University

What is Peer Tutoring?

Peer tutoring is a program designed to assist students with their coursework and it is available in two formats:

Walk-in Tutoring

Walk-in tutoring is geared primarily towards large introductory courses and offered Sunday through Thursday evenings 8:30pm-11:00pm at select residence halls and other locations on campus during the fall and spring semesters. No appointment is necessary, just walk-in!

Standing Tutoring Appointments

If Walk-in Tutoring, SI or EXCEL groups are not available for the course you are seeking help in, you may be able to request a Standing Tutoring Appointment by stopping by our office and completing a tutoring request form. We'll do our best to find you a tutor. Read more...
