Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring is an academic support service connected to Gardner-Webb University’s Student Success Division. It is a course-specific tutoring service used to contribute to the tutors and tutees personal development and academic success.

Almost all general education courses are available for tutoring and some major courses. For courses that are not offered, whether general education or major courses, the center strives to provide tutoring assistance for them as well. Peer Tutoring is one of the many student resources Gardner-Webb University offers undergraduate students in need of academic assistance.

Peer Tutoring provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to schedule an individual tutoring appointment with a peer tutor who has previously excelled in the requested course. During the student’s tutoring session, the tutee will receive individual attention in a supportive environment in which he or she has the opportunity to discuss course-specific exam or presentation. Our policies and responsibilities are developed to benefit the undergraduate student’s learning process. Peer tutoring generates no additional fees for the student.
