Peer and Professional Tutoring

Academic success takes planning and effort. Treat it as your first full-time job.

Academic success involves spending time outside the classroom preparing for class. In fact, this is vital for achieving course and academic goals. Studies show that for every hour in the classroom you should plan to spend approximately two to three hours outside the classroom studying, organizing notes, reading assignments, and completing group projects.

Additional Requests

Please fill out the Peer Tutoring Request Form

Requests for tutoring help for 300 and 400 level courses will be met if possible, but are not guaranteed. In the upper-level courses, it is best for students to take the initiative to form a small study group of equally serious students and work directly with instructors during their office hours.
