Peer Tutoring
Peer tutoring is an opportunity to assist or to get assistance from your friends in schoolwork. It is a way for all students to get 1-on-1 help with a volunteer student tutor. If you are having trouble in a course, get help from your friends! If you are cruising through classes, help out your peers!
How peer tutoring works
Students sign up to get peer tutors. Students sign up to be peer tutors. Looking at their schedule availability, the LRC staff will match peer tutor volunteers with a high school student who is in need of assistance in a particular subject. They typically meet once a week either in the LRC or the library during their study hall or before/after school. You can receive help on homework assignments, review class notes and readings, discuss core concepts, and prepare for tests, exams, projects, essays, etc.
