The process of obtaining a peer tutor is easy and only takes a few minutes. However, before you actually make the request :

  1. Peer tutoring is NOT meant to replace regular class attendance.  A pattern of unexplained  absence would result in disallowance of tutoring.
  2. Speak with your professor concerning the learning issue you feel challenged by. Quite possibly, assistance could be provided immediately that would provide significant help.
  3. Touch base with your advisor. Again, they may know of something that would be enormously helpful. At the least, your ongoing discussions with you adviser will enrich the relationship you have and lead to better and better decisions being made over time.

Should you then desire a peer tutor, there are two easy steps:

  1. Complete the online “Request a Tutor” form below and submit
  2. Complete the brief “Student Success Survey” and submit (make sure to print a copy for yourself).
    • Username: ashland
    • Password: university
    • When prompted at the end, please select "Bruce Keller" as survey recipient.

We will be in touch with you very soon.

Preparation for your tutoring session

  1. Please be on time. If for any reason you are going to be late for a session or will not be there at all, please promptly get in contact with your tutor to inform them of your status.
  2. For the first session, bring your copy of “An Action Plan” from the Student Success Survey you submitted.
  3. Do as much of the assignment or task that you are capable of. By doing so, you will generate some specific questions or point to content that the peer tutor can focus on.
  4. Be aware that the tutor is not to do the work for you. Completion of the assignment is your responsibility. The peer tutor will gladly assist you in developing a deeper understanding such that you can successfully achieve your objective.
