Peer Tutoring consists of 13 to 14 tutors each semester. The tutors bring an array of skills, talents, backgrounds, and interests to our tutoring program. Peer tutoring provides tutors with the chance to explore career interests associated with teaching and/or other service related professions.

Peer Tutoring may be a good job for you if you:

  • Like to help your friends study
  • Enjoy talking with faculty about course material
  • Understand learning is different for everyone
  • Are committed to academic success for yourself and others

Peer Tutoring is committed to hiring the most competent and caring tutors. The tutoring lab is currently certified as an Internationally Certified Tutoring Program through CRLA. The certification process is rigorous and rewarding, as each tutor will need to meet the required training hours and exceptions in order to become a certified tutor. Details regarding the training requirements and processes can be found on the CRLA website, or you may contact the program Director, Dee Pettis, if you have specific questions.
