A peer tutor is someone who is excelling in their program and wants to help other students do the same. They support other students by assisting them in understanding key concepts within a specific subject. Tutors do not provide “answers” but rather assist in the learning process. Tutors provide their subject expertise, share their academic experience and learning strategies, and provide encouragement.
Supported Learning Groups (SLGs) are peer-facilitated study sessions targeting challenging courses to help students review and practice more difficult program material.
SLG Leaders are upper-semester students who attend lectures, and then plan and facilitate regularly scheduled study sessions to help better students understand course content. Become a Supported Learning Group (SLG) Leader to support your peers in better understanding challenging course content, gaining effective study skills and maximizing their potential for academic success.
