Requesting a Peer Tutor
The first person you should see if you are having difficulties in a course is your course instructor. Peer tutoring should be used to supplement other means of support such as TA sessions, group mentoring programs, the writing and math workshops, and sessions held by peer advisers. If you still need more intensive, individualized tutoring, you may request individual tutoring by following these steps:
1. Inform your course instructor that you are requesting a tutor.
2. Complete the Tutor Request Form.
3. Read the Guidelines for Students Requesting A Tutor.
4. Meet with your class dean for approval. All students requesting a tutor must have the approval of their class dean.
Tutors are not assigned as language conversation partners. Please contact your instructor for conversation partners.
Requesting a tutor does not guarantee that you will be placed with a tutor. Tutor Requests are processed in the order received.
Please submit ONLY ONE request per class. Submitting multiple requests will only delay the assignment process.
The following courses are tutored in small groups. If you are requesting a tutor for these courses, your name will be shared with the other students being assigned to the group.
BIOL/MB&B 181, 182; CHEM 141, 142, 251, 252; ECON 110, 300, 301; MATH 117, 118, 121, 122, 221, 222; PHYS 111
Due to increased demand for tutors, many assignments are now being made is small groups of three to five students.
