What It's Like
Peer tutoring (drop-in and appointment formats) are offered in fall, spring and summer terms and service is free of charge. Peer tutors are students who have received training and completed the courses they tutor with a grade of "B" or better.
Tutors are recommended and approved by an ARC faculty member. Your peer tutor is trained to coach you and give you tools to learn the course material. You are expected to be an active participant during your tutoring session.
Online tutoring is provided in three different formats. For more information on what to expect, go to the Online Tutoring webpage for more information.
