What is Peer Tutoring?
Peer tutoring is academic assistance to students having difficulty in a specific course. It is administered by other students (peers) who have already successfully completed that course.
Our goal is to help students develop the skills necessary to become confident and independent learners.
Peer tutors meet one-on-one or in a small group with SSS program participants for up to four hours a week per subject. Click here to obtain form to complete a tutor's schedule.
