Peer tutoring is a research-backed 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 have to make an appointment to meet with a tutor.* Simply check the schedule (link found in “Resources” section) to be sure a tutor will be in the CSA at the time you plan to come in.

*Unless you need tutoring for the Praxis I test. If so, please call the CSA at 410-677-4865 to schedule an appointment.
