Highly Trained Academic Peer Mentors.

Here to assist you.

Our highly trained academic peer mentors can assist you with subjects that can often be difficult and required for a variety of majors across campus (engineering, business, chemistry, economics, and world languages). Tutoring is offered on a drop-in basis or by appointment. Tutors will work together with you to help you better understand concepts. Please respect their work by doing your own work before coming to a tutoring session. Bring all texts, homework assignments, notes, etc. with you, as we do not have such materials.
