The Learning Centre is here to help you become more successful in your courses. Peer tutors can help you work on your academic skills (writing, reading, study, math and computer skills) and your understanding of course concepts.
Peer tutors are students who are hired and trained by the Learning Centre. They are not college instructors; when they can't help you, they may refer you to a Learning Centre faculty member or to your instructor.
