All peer tutors are required to participate in a minimum of 10 hours of training.  

Tutoring Center Goals

  • To encourage and assist learning for students of all skills and backgrounds.
  • To continue to develop student’s study skills, critical thinking and problem solving abilities beyond the tutoring sessions.
  • To offer opportunities to student to become peer tutors, gain teaching experience and deepen their own learning.

The Tutoring Center is located in the Library L246A.  Walk-ins are welcome.  Please check the Course Schedule for details on availability.  Download this student resource guide:
