Peer tutoring is an active-learning and guided practice approach for students to interact with other peers, through individual or group instruction. It is supplemental to the teaching that takes place in the classroom and does not replace attending class, weekly office hours, or specific course curriculum. We strongly encourage you to always make use of faculty office hours for individualized instruction.
Peer tutors have often had the same class with the same instructor. They understand the potential roadblocks to success from a student standpoint. Students may find it easier to talk about difficulties they are having in a class and often develop a sense of partnership with a peer tutor.
