What to Expect at a Tutoring Appointment

Your Peer Tutor will be another student who has already taken the course and excelled. 

The Peer Tutor can answer your questions, guide you through confusing topics, and challenge you to practice questions to prepare for tests and exams. Peer tutors also listen to your concerns and help you develop study methods to help you to succeed in your course. Peer Tutors can support you with the following:

  • Clarifying course content
  • Clarifying assignment questions
  • Preparing for presentations
  • Preparing for tests and exams
  • Providing study tips and strategies
  • Setting up your calculator and providing tips


Peer tutors will not do your homework, assignments, or MyCanvas quizzes. Tutoring is not a replacement for going to class.

Tutoring appointments are 50 minutes in duration.

Preparing for your Appointment

Before your appointment, review areas that are causing you difficulty. To start, review your course outline, homework, or class notes. Tutors will be helping you with the course you booked an appointment for; they will not support multiple courses in a single appointment.

When you come for your appointment

  • Arrive on time (tutors will only wait 15 minutes)
  • Bring your course materials, course outline, class notes, textbook or practice materials.
  • Be prepared with questions that you want to ask your tutor
  • Be open to discussing what is most difficult about the course


Do not skip class to come to tutoring. Your tutor will help you through your course content but cannot re-teach the material.
