Fall 2021 Peer Tutoring

You can book one-on-one appointments on WCOnline to meet with a peer tutor for 30 or 60 minutes. Most tutors are offering both in-person and Zoom live virtual appointments. You can select the modality that works best for you.

Some tutors also offer group tutoring. In order to maintain appropriate social distancing during group tutoring, each session will have a cap on the number of students who can attend. Please book in advance to secure your place. You may attend without signing up in advance only if there is enough space in the room to adhere to current covid protocols.

Select disciplines also offer drop-in tutoring for immediate assistance. Drop-in tutoring is available for immediate, short-term support and is usually held in a space where students can study independently and ask for assistance when needed and then return to working alone or with their classmates while the tutor moves to another student. 

The Brainard Writing Center is also open for appointments and can help you with writing assignments of all lengths for any class. 

  • Do you need a tutor for a class not listed on WCOnline? Tutor requests can help ensure there is a tutor when you need one. Sometimes we are able to meet your needs with little wait time. Other times it may take a few weeks to fulfill the request so it is a good idea to reach out early. To make your request, simply email and let us know which course. (Please include the course code and title.)
  • Would you like to work as a tutor? You can learn more about requirements and apply to be a tutor for any discipline on Handshake. You will need a recommendation from a faculty member in the discipline.
