Peer Tutoring Program
Coordinator of Disability Services
*Fall deadline to be matched with a tutor is
Friday, November 20, 2009.*
How does it work?:
Students seeking a tutor are encouraged to first consult with their professor and inquire about departmental resources.
Students seeking assistance with a particular subject will be matched with a tutor who has a solid understanding of the subject matter. (Tutors must have achieved an "A" in coursework for the material for which they will tutor.)
Tutors may volunteer to be placed on the tutor list, or may be recommended by a faculty member.
Once matched, students and their tutors decide on a low-distraction meeting place, discuss the needs of the student seeking tutoring and the areas that they will concentrate on, and determine a fee (usually $8-10/hr.) paid directly to the tutor.
Some things to remember:
While tutoring can help a struggling student succeed, it can also help the tutor reinforce his/her own knowledge, creating a mutually-beneficial situation.
Tutoring can enhance a student's grasp of subject matter while helping them develop successful strategies for study habits, time management, and more.
