What is Peer Tutoring?

The objectives of the Peer Tutoring Program are as follows:

  1. To provide learning assistance to students in a particular academic subject or skill area by pairing such students with fellow students who have demonstrated competence in that particular academic subject or skill area.
  2. To improve students’ understanding and application of concepts and methods as they pertain to a particular subject or skill, thereby enhancing student success.
  3. To provide tutors with an opportunity to refine their communication, instructional and interpersonal skills through the process of peer interactive instruction.
  4. To provide tutors with a constructive mechanism to consolidate their own knowledge in a particular subject or skill area while earning a fee for the provision of tutorial services.

It is the policy of the Peer Tutoring Program that tutors do not provide help with assignments to be submitted for a grade unless written permission has been obtained from the course instructor.
