Trained English peer tutors are available for students whose English is not their first language. A student can be matched with an English peer tutor to receive help with their language and study skills. A tutee is allowed a maximum of 10 hours of English paired tutoring for the semester.

We also have peer tutors that are available to students who require content help with mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology courses as well as certain technology program courses. A tutee is allowed a maximum of 10 hours of Math/Science paired tutoring for the semester.
