Peer tutoring is an opportunity to connect with a student who has previously done well in some courses. Most tutoring is one-on-one, but occasionally tutors can also work with small groups of students.
International students often seek peer tutors in order to:
Solve problems arising during the study process
Better understand the topic taught
Prepare for an exam
Build confidence in understanding course materials
Learn in a supportive environment with a fellow student
Peer tutors receive training, understand challenges and want to help the other students to learn what they know. A peer tutor may be available to any international student who wants to get help with one or another course. It is up to the student and the tutor to make contact and set a time for tutoring. Students can meet with a tutor in a convenient public place such as a library or a dorm common area. Peer tutoring is free. After meeting the tutor should update the short online journal of tutoring session management.
