Need a little extra help to ace a challenging class? Peer tutoring is the answer.
The peer tutoring program is one of the resources available at the Academic Resource Center. This is a free program for undergraduate students who are trying to maintain an “A” or are faced with a particularly challenging course.
Been There, Be Successful
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
Take the First Step
As a college student, it’s up to you to reach out to the peer tutoring program. You can’t wait for your professor to suggest it or your advisor to mention it. If you think working one-on-one with someone who has “been there, done that” can get you closer to your goal of academic success, take the first step by scheduling a free appointment. 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. If you need assistance writing a paper for a class, you can contact the helpful staff at The Writing Center. Their sole mission is to provide writing support at every stage of the process.
