Learning Outcomes for Tutors and Tutees:

We are committed to the learning and development of both the students who use our services and our student leaders who support the delivery of these services.

Students who use peer tutoring develop academic self-confidence, build skills and gain a better understanding of their course content.  They also learn new study skills and develop better habits.  

Our Student leaders are provided with ongoing training and professional development. Student Leaders develop their leadership, interpersonal and communication skills. Many skills developed by our Student Leaders are often sought after by future employers.
