Tutoring & Peer Learning

Update: Due to current safety guidelines, all Peer Learning will be conducted online through Zoom or similar video-conferencing applications. 

Academic Support provides supplemental instruction in group formats for select classes as Peer-Assisted Study Sessions (PASS).  Student peer educators partner with faculty in different ways to extend course-specific learning for all students. 

**Peer learning support of any kind is not a replacement for class time OR office hours with a faculty member.  Your faculty should be the FIRST stop when you need support, not a peer educator.**

About Tutoring and Peer Learning Support:

  • Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are available in select courses, and students enrolled in those courses may use those scheduled sessions as frequently as needed.
  • All schedules are available in Momentum and visible to enrolled students, peer educators, and faculty.
  • Tutoring is designed to be in groups, so students should not expect to have private or one-on-one tutoring.  Group learning is valuable in many fields and disciplines, and learning how to learn in groups and ask about what you don't know are important life skills.
  • Requests for tutoring beyond current staff capacity cannot be accommodated.  Not all courses can be covered by tutoring support, but other support is available in Academic Support.
