Peer tutors are available in nearly 30 courses. Peer tutors offer one-on-one and small group sessions by appointment. They also offer drop-in sessions that don’t require an appointment. Scheduled and drop-in sessions are available on campus or virtually. Tutors are no longer restricted to the 8:30-4:30 business hours so many tutors offer evening and weekend sessions. Students who wish to request a peer tutor should complete this form: https://dyc.wufoo.com/forms/m1pw7dc404rr9jq/.Students who wish to become a peer tutor can apply here: https://dyc.wufoo.com/forms/mjschuk13h06zc/.Right now, I am recruiting tutors for CHE 219.
Mary Applegate, Writing Specialist in the Learning Center (Library, 3rd floor), is on campus to help students with any writing project in any course. Her hours are 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. Students should sign up for an appointment on Genbook:
When making an appointment, students should specify the type of appointment they prefer: zoom, in-person, phone, or independent review. Also, they should email Mary their documents in advance of the appointment. Mary’s contact information: firstname.lastname@example.org or 829-7773.
