Peer Tutoring is a research-based academic support service that has been a part of American Education for centuries. Peer tutors are selected based on past academic achievement and faculty recommendations. Tutors meet one-on-one or in small groups with students to help them grasp fundamental concepts, work through practice problems, and develop a further understanding of the course content. Tutoring helps students develop independent learning strategies that can be used throughout their college experience and as they progress through life.
You do not need to make an appointment to meet with a tutor.
** Simply check the schedule to be sure a tutor will be in the CSA at the time you plan to come in.
**If you plan to receive tutoring for the Praxis Core Exam, please call the CSA at 410-677-4865 to schedule an appointment.
What Tutoring Participants Say...
Quotes from Spring 2017:
“I was struggling so much at the start of the semester because I was so nervous I wouldn't do well. The tutor turned my attitude upside down and made me be optimistic. Without her, I would not have passed this class. She was so helpful, patient, and really wanted us to do well. I appreciate her so much for helping me. She was probably the most encouraging and helpful tutor I have ever had! Thanks!”
“The three tutors I went to were all super friendly and helpful throughout the whole semester. I definitely learned a lot and strengthened my physics skills because of them. I truly don't think I would be doing nearly as well as I am if it weren't for their endless help. They also were really fun and made learning physics interesting. Thanks so much for everything guys!”
