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 during the fall and spring semesters. Students can drop in between 8:30pm and 11:00pm Sundays through Thursdays at select residence halls and other campus locations. No appointment is necessary, just walk-in!

This is not an exhaustive list of courses we support. If Walk-in Tutoring or SI are not offered for the course you are seeking help in, you may be able to request a Weekly Tutoring Appointment by visiting by our office and completing a tutoring request form. We'll do our best to find you a tutor.

Weekly Tutoring Appointments

Weekly Tutoring Appointments are intended for students who utilize Walk-in and/or SI but feel they need additional support, or for students who need assistance with a course that is not supported by either of these services. Weekly appointments give students the opportunity to interact regularly with the same tutor to facilitate deeper understanding of concepts. EXCEL Groups are offered as an alternative to Weekly Tutoring Appointments in select courses. You can view the list of courses and register for an EXCEL Group here.

If you can not make the committment of meeting regularly with a tutor, then a weekly tutoring appointment is not for you. Read our Attendance Policy to find out how weekly 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 weekly tutoring appointments may involve small group tutoring — individual tutoring appointments are not guaranteed.
