DEANS' PEER TUTORING PROGRAM

In order to help mitigate health risks and comply with the University's Community Agreement, tutoring will continue to be provided virtually. Students can enroll as a peer tutor, or request a peer tutor, throughout the semester, and we will remain committed to supporting students in the remote tutoring environment.

Peer tutors provide supplementary course-content instruction for students who request them. Peer tutoring is provided free of charge; students can receive up to two hours of tutoring each week per course for which they are matched with a tutor. Peer tutors are employed by the University, and paid by the Deans’ Office.

Tutor-tutee matches are made as quickly as possible. While students may be referred to use the Deans' Peer Tutoring Program, tutees are self-identified, and must complete a request for tutoring in order to be matched with a tutor. Students recommended to be a peer tutor must also self-enroll, and complete the enrollment requirements, before they will be matched with tutees.
