Tutoring Services

Faculty-Driven, Peer-Delivered

Faculty-recommended peer tutors provide assistance in over 100 courses, and Write Place tutors assist students in every major. CLASS peer tutors are faculty-recommended and have successfully completed the course(s) they tutor with a grade of B+ or higher. Tutors clarify concepts in gateway and high-risk courses; students participate in review sessions and in facilitated study groups that are guided by faculty. Students may also review specific course material or improve skills under the guidance of a peer tutor. This assistance is offered free of charge to undergraduates.
