Fall 2017 Peer Tutors

Peer Tutors help students with study skills, homework assignments, preparing for exams, and planning for academic success.                           

While tutoring is available on a walk-in basis, we recommend making an appointment to ensure that your tutor is prepared and ready to assist you.  You’ll find a schedule of available tutors on our Tutoring Schedule page.  You can also easily set an appointment with a tutor by identifying which tutor can help with the coursework you need and then by clicking on the “Book an appointment” link.
