Become a Trojan Tutor!

Trojan Tutoring will provide in-person peer tutoring starting spring term 2022 in the Ottenheimer Library. Anticipated: Tutors will be available mid-day through evening hours depending on tutor availability Sunday through Thursday. 

Trojan Tutoring is provided for General Education/Core Curriculum subjects and courses (generally 1000/2000 level courses that are not already provided by existing tutoring services or centers i.e. composition, math, and communications).

Our mission is to assist students in increasing their academic success. We believe that peer tutors can provide unparalleled service to students in addressing their academic studies. Peers can provide a student’s perspective on learning and strategies for academic success. The development of a supportive tutorial relationship is the main ingredient to helping a student attain their educational goals. Peer tutors facilitate learning as a guide or coach to the student.
