Who are our tutors?

Our peer tutors are successful students who have earned at least an A- in the courses they tutor, have been recommended by their professors, and have been trained in effective tutoring techniques through our intensive, CRLA Level 1 and 2 certified tutor training program.  Their goal is to help students review course content through the use of interactive learning strategies and to help students learn study strategies that will aid in their success in their future classes as well. Peer tutors help improve performance in a difficult course by modeling effective study techniques and breaking down difficult concepts.
