Spring 2021 COVID-19 Update:
The Learning Center remains open and Peer Tutors are eager to connect with students. During the Spring 2021 semester, all appointments with Peer Tutors will be held via Microsoft Teams and scheduled during Eastern Daylight/Standard Time.

Peer Tutors can help you achieve your academic goals in a specific class. Peer tutors can help you understand assignments, explain the key concepts of course materials, offer feedback and encouragement, and share appropriate resources. Tutoring sessions are individual, weekly, and one-hour long.
Peer tutors have excelled in their coursework, been nominated by their professors, and have been trained through the Learning Center’s peer tutor curriculum.

If you are looking for a tutor for a different class, ask your professor! Many academic departments have tutoring opportunities and other resources to assist students in their coursework.
Request a Peer Tutor
To request a tutor you will need to create a ClockWork account if you do not already have one. Once you have completed this, you will be able to search for tutors that match your needs by selecting "Online Tutoring" in the ClockWork Main Menu. When requesting a tutor, please ignore the "Course" search bar and only use the "Keyword" search bar. When using the "Keyword" search bar, please use general terminology, such as "biology," "chemistry," "psychology," etc. Do not use specific course names and numbers.
Please refer to our Guide to Requesting a Peer Tutor with ClockWork for a detailed explanation of this process.
If you have questions about the peer tutor program or are interested in becoming a peer tutor, contact Kaylynne Mahone.
