Haven't Been Matched?

If you applied for a peer tutor and haven't heard back from us, it's because we're still working on recruiting a tutor for you. We will notify you once we have someone for you, but there are other actions steps you can take to help you achieve your goals!  Reach out to TAs in the course, and/or attend faculty office hours! Joining a study group is a great way to receive help in a course. We highly encourage you to attend weekly study group sessions. Also, if there are students that are "known" to have done well in the course previously, let us know and we will try to recruit them for you.
