Tutoring

Maximize Your Understanding of Concepts

Mistakes are a critical part of learning

We understand that there can be a lot of pressure to "get the grade."  But we also know that mistakes are a critical part of learning.  So wouldn't it be better to make mistakes with a peer tutor who understands the pressures of being a student, rather than on your quiz or exam?   

Partnering for your success

Academic success at a university requires a lot of effort and effective studying, and it can be hard. Study methods for one course don’t always work in another course. Staying on top of all your course work can be a challenge for anyone. But you don’t have to face the stress and challenges on your own because our team of dedicated peer tutors are here for you! We want to support you in your academic journey.   

Whether you’re feeling behind, wanting to improve, or going strong and want to keep your streak, our CRLA-certified tutors will partner with you to maximize your learning potential. We offer Tutoring Appointments and Guided Study Groups to support you. 


 

Guided Study Groups 

Sign up for a Guided Study Group session where you will focus on connecting with your classmates for a regular study time guided by one of our qualified peer tutors. Meet weekly with your study group (2-4 students from your class) to discuss concepts together, work on practice problems, and strengthen your understanding of course content while learning collaboratively. A tutor will be there to guide your study sessions, answer any questions, and facilitate your collaborative learning empowering you to discover your own learning potential.
