Academic peer mentors
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 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.
