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.

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.
