About Individual Tutoring


Individual tutoring is very limited and is intended for students who demonstrate a particular need for individual tutorial support.

Requests for individual tutors may be submitted beginning in Week 2 and requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The form to request an individual tutor can be found here.

Requesting Specific Tutors/Tutees

Specific Requests

The meetings between specific tutor/tutee and the Peer Tutoring Program are limited and are not guaranteed. Details to request a specific tutor are provided on the individual tutor request form. Individuals wishing to work together must complete this process before the match is taken under consideration. Completion of this process does not guarantee that you will be matched. Students demonstrating exceptional need for Individual Tutoring take precedence over specific tutor/tutee matches.

Continuing Work A With Tutor/Tutee

Requesting to work with an individual tutor involves a review process each term.  Any students who have been matched in a prior term that wish to continue working together in an immediately-following term must still submit an individual tutor request form.

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 Student Center for Research, Writing, and Information Technology (RWIT) is a good service to consider. RWIT 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 RWIT, 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, RWIT tutors can provide feedback that will help you create final products of which you can be proud.
