         Individual on Campus Tutoring Request for the Undergraduate Students 

The process of obtaining a free 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 to the tutoring sessions 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 your advisor 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. Please read the Preparation for your Tutoring Session below
  2. Complete the online “Request a Tutor” form below and submit

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 get in contact with your tutor at least one hour before the starting session time to inform he/she of your status.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
