Peer Tutors are students like you! They understand your challenges and they are eager to help you learn. Tutors are trained in current tutoring practices and strategies, and have been highly successful in the courses they tutor.
First, check to see if peer tutoring is available for the course you are taking. If it is, follow these instructions to fill out your peer tutoring application. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
Please see our current list of available courses.
The only course that requires eligibility is Economics 101. Please review additional tutoring information for eligibility requirements for this course. Otherwise, there are no restrictions for our peer tutors, walk-in, or math study groups.
You may have only one tutor for one hour each week during the semester - or two hours during the summer session. The exception is if you have a foreign language tutor, in which case you may have one additional tutor for a non-foreign language course as well.
Yes! Having a tutor does not restrict you from also joining the walk-in and/or math study groups - they are open to anyone, regardless of whether you are receiving one-on-one tutoring or not.
Walk-in Tutoring is an opportunity for students in certain courses to get extra help from a peer tutor during regularly scheduled sessions. You are welcome to drop by at any time during the scheduled times for as long as you wish!
Math study groups are available to any student seeking additional assistance in certain math courses. Led by one of our learning consultants, our math study groups are a great opportunity to get answers to questions, work with your peers, and stay on top of your math challenges.
There are certain responsibilities for both the tutor and the tutee. The information on “Tutee Responsibilities” details your responsibilities and important information you need to know about having a tutor.
Students with one-on-one tutoring meet weekly with tutors in a convenient public location on campus such as an empty classroom, the library, or a dorm common area. You and your tutor will agree on a time and a location that works for you both.
Walk-in and Study groups meet in specifically designated locations at scheduled times.
The ARC learning consultants are always available to meet with you to talk about learning strategies, approaches, and courses related challenges you may be facing. Contact us to make an appointment.
There are also numerous learning resources available to students beyond tutoring.
Though you may submit your tutor request as early as the first day of classes, tutorial services do not begin until after the add/drop period. After the add/drop period, all tutor requests will be processed in the order in which they were received.
After the add/drop period, you can expect to receive an email regarding your tutor request status.
Once you are matched with a tutor, within your confirmation email you will find your tutor’s first and last name. Please feel free to reach out to your tutor immediately after being matched. If 3 days have passed without hearing from your tutor, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When contacting us, provide your full name, the course for which you are receiving tutoring, and your tutor’s name.
Though we can not guarantee that you will be matched with your specific tutor, we do make every effort to honor such requests. Requests for specific tutors must be submitted three after the start of the first day of classes. You must complete the online tutor request AND submit your signed Instructor Referral to the academic resource center.
Students are placed on the waitlist in the order in which the tutor request was received. Once a tutorial slot becomes available, you will receive an email from the Peer Tutoring Program providing you with your tutor’s information.
