The Peer Tutor program offers academic tutoring at no additional cost to currently enrolled undergraduate University of Minnesota students. While our offerings change to some degree depending on the specializations of our active tutors each semester, we do regularly support disciplines for which there is historically high demand, e.g. math, sciences, writing. Support is provided by drop-in sessions, scheduled individual appointments, and starting Fall 2018, online appointments. Students can search the on-line schedule for tutors in their classes.
Faculty and instructors may consider using the following description of our services for their course syllabi:
Free drop-in and by-appointment tutoring is available through the SMART Learning Commons Peer Tutor program. While tutors will not help directly with coursework to be graded, they will use similar work or practice problems to help students develop the skills and concept-mastery necessary to approach their graded work confidently. Peer Tutors are faculty-recommended, exemplary undergraduates who are passionate about helping others and trained in educational theories and effective learning strategies. Detailed information about specializations, schedules, and locations is available online at smart.umn.edu.
