About the Peer Tutoring Program

The Academic Skills Center offers Tutoring through the Peer Tutoring Program (PTP) each term. 

Tutoring is separated into two categories: Peer Tutoring and Academic Recovery Tutoring.

Peer Tutoring Program Mission

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

Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutors hold three weekly 1 hour tutorial sessions for select courses. Two of these sessions are small group tutoring sessions and one session is drop-in support.

Academic Recovery Tutoring (ART)

Academic Recovery Tutoring (ART) is offered on a limited basis for students who meet a specific set of criteria. Students are paired with an ART Tutor for the term and meet with them individually for 1 hour weekly.

Looking for Support in an ENGL, CRWT, COLT, or WRIT course?

The Peer Tutoring Program does not provide tutors for English & Creative Writing, Comparative Literature, or Writing courses. However, there are many other resources on campus to support you. See our Campus Resources page here.

Specifically, the Writing Center is a free service dedicated to helping members of the Dartmouth community develop more effective strategies for generating and organizing their ideas, finding and evaluating research sources, and presenting and revising compositions in a variety of media. At the Writing Center, you can meet one-on-one with an undergraduate or graduate tutor to discuss a paper, research project, or multimedia assignment. Tutors use a facilitative, rather than directive, approach in engaging writers in an active dialogue about their work. Whether you are brainstorming, drafting, or polishing, Writing Center tutors can provide feedback that will help you create final products of which you can be proud.
