There is no substitute for attending class, completing all the assignments, and speaking to your instructors to ensure you reach success in all your classes. Nevertheless, there are times when some parts of the class seem to really be a challenge. If that is the case, a peer tutor may benefit you! Peer tutors are trained by the Learning Commons staff, and have met specific qualifications to be hired. Contact us about whether a peer tutor is the right strategy for you!
While we have great Western tutors available to help you, we also have additional online tutoring available through a service called Net Tutor. Hours and availability vary by subject, but this can be a good option if your schedule doesn’t line up with the peer tutors or other support options for your course or subject. Connect directly to Net Tutor from the tools area of Blackboard.
We are always looking for peer tutors to help other students. If you want to earn a little extra cash, want to support other students, and received an “A” in the course, we are looking for you! Come talk with us. Not only will you learn more about the subject you tutor, but you will learn more about learning strategies for your own success. Plus, it looks great on your resume!
