Small group tutoring is available at no additional cost to students.

  • Peer tutors are hired to work with small groups of students two times per week throughout the semester.
  • Sessions are held Monday through Friday (during the day or evening) and are held over Zoom.
  • Tutor groups consist of students who are in the same course and have the same instructor.
  • Students learn how to conceptualize course material, sharpen reasoning and questioning skills, and utilize available resources to become stronger, interdependent learners.
  • Sessions are process-oriented, learner-centered, and require the active involvement of each student.
