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 offered at select locations on campus during the fall and spring semesters, and is geared primarily towards large introductory courses. No appointment is necessary.


Standing Tutoring Appointments

Standing Tutoring Appointments may be available for courses not supported by Walk-in Tutoring or EXCEL Groups. Once the appointment is set up, students meet with their tutor once a week for the remainder of the semester. Stop by our office to fill out a Standing Tutoring Appointment request form.

STANDING TUTORING APPOINTMENTS

We will begin taking tutoring requests on Tuesday, Sept. 2nd

If you have tried walk-in tutoring and SI, and still require more assistance, or if you need help in a course not supported by these other services, you can request a standing tutoring appointment. Standing appointments are an on-going weekly commitment. Students meet with tutors once a week for one hour at a set time. If you cannot make this weekly commitment, then a standing appointment is not for you.
Read our Attendance Policy to find out how standing appointments work. Then come in to the Academic Development office in Cyert Hall, Suite B5 to fill out a Tutoring Request Form. We'll do our best to find you a tutor as quickly as possible.

Please note that standing tutoring appointments may involve small group tutoring — individual tutoring appointments are not guaranteed.

additional resources

physics course center

Additional help with Physics is available through the Physics Course Center. Most of the first year introductory courses have Course Centers. Several days a week, students can walk in to get help in the course they are taking.

international communication center

The Intercultural Communication Center (ICC) offers language support and cross-cultural training to help all students who are non-native English speakers succeed in their academic programs.

global communication center

The Global Communication Center (GCC) is a new resource supporting students' efforts to improve their communication skills. The GCC supports written, oral, and visual communication for all students at any stage of the process.
