Peer Tutoring

The Peer Tutoring Program allows students who are excelling academically to help other students by leading drop-in tutorial sessions for a variety of subject areas and programs. Tutors work with tutees to review course material and work through questions together; however, tutors do not re-teach an entire class or help tutees complete entire assignments.

How Does the Program Work?

  • Weekly group, drop-in tutoring sessions
  • Students can attend for the whole session weekly or drop-in as needed with questions
  • The Peer Tutoring Schedule can be found at the Library Service Desk and as a PDF document on the right side of this page
  • In addition to specific program tutoring, core subjects are also covered on the schedule such as English and Mathematics
  • One-on-One/Small Group tutoring is available for students with registered disabilities or a demonstrated need via a referral from an Academic Counsellor in Student Services
  • Peer tutors are paid $16.24 per hour for leading group tutorial sessions and $14.21 per hour for one-on-one/small group tutoring
  • Training for peer tutors is provided by the Peer Tutoring Coordinator and Peer Tutoring Assistant
