The tutors in this program are other students who have been successful in class and are recommended by their professors. These peer tutors have taken the classes and understand how to help fellow students grasp the course content and refine their study skills. In a typical semester, the peer tutoring program:
- Hires approximately 60 tutors
- Works with more than 400 students
- Conducts more than 1,500 tutoring sessions
If you need help to set up your appointment, come by the Academic Resource Center on the second floor of the Ethel K. Smith Library.
In Gateway 101, you are introduced to the resources and tools you need from the full-time faculty members who lead the class, upperclass students (Peer Mentors) and your fellow classmates. The course is linked to another first-year course, which is typically taught by the same faculty member or another faculty member in the same department. Linking your Gateway 101 course to another first-year course provides you with more time to build relationships with classmates, mentors and the faculty.
