Peer Tutoring Program
Mission of the Peer Tutoring Program
To encourage personal and academic development by providing
supportive, active, and collaborative learning environments that facilitate
students' transition to campus, on-going success in pursuit of their
academic goals, as well as preparation for a lifetime of learning in
support of the charge of the Academic Skills Center at Dartmouth
Group tutoring consists of several students, in addition to a group tutor, and meet three times weekly for 1-hour tutorial sessions. Group tutoring is available for introductory courses that have historically experienced high tutoring demand. These courses are primarily within STEM and social science disciplines. Other high-demand courses that fall outside this rubric will also be considered for group tutoring.
Individual tutoring is very limited and is intended for students who demonstrate a specific need for individual tutorial support. Individual tutors meet with their tutees for one hour a week per course. More information and the application to request an individual tutor can be found here.
Students who are approved for an individual tutor are also strongly encouraged to join a tutoring group.
Tutoring sessions may entail:
- Going over key concepts to help solidify understanding of the course material
- Working through example or practice problems
- Answering questions and reviewing course material
