Peer Tutoring Services
Our Peer Tutoring Service gives students who are receiving high grades the opportunity to assist their fellow students. Peer Tutoring gives students valuable work experience, an opportunity to develop a career network and a little bit of spending money.
Students who need assistance with a particular subject should never fear talking with their instructors to discuss the need for some extra help. Your instructor will work with you and the Student Support Worker to arrange for a tutor.
