Peer Tutorial Program

Peer Tutorial services are provided, free of charge, to help refine students’ study skills as well as provide them with assistance in most subjects.

  • Peer tutors are students who are recommended by faculty or chosen by the Tutor Coordinator on the basis of strong performance in a specific course.
  • Tutoring is an opportunity for students to share their enthusiasm for a course as well as their strategies and techniques for learning the material effectively.
  • Tutors are paid for their time (hours can be used toward work study allottment or college employment, based on eligibility)
  • Many tutors find the experience of helping fellow students succeed in courses in which they have done well themselves enjoyable

Who is eligible for tutoring services?

  • All Hartwick College students, in all years and at all levels of understanding, are eligible for a peer tutor.
  • There are occasions where a tutor may not be available in a course. In that case students are encouraged to work with their professor regarding the content of the course.
  • Before seeking tutoring services, students are encouraged to first speak with their instructor. 
  • If taking a class that offers Progressive Instruction, students are urged to first meet with them during PI hours.

How do I get a tutor?
Peer tutoring drop-in sessions are offered for a variety of classes each term.  See the following schedule for drop-in tutoring times, by subject:

2015 Spring Term Tutor Schedule  

Individual Peer Tutoring is also available for students looking for assistance in a specific course that is not listed on our drop-sessions schedule. Please stop by the Center for Student Success in the Stevens-German Library to fill out a Tutor Request Form. Once this paperwork is complete and submitted, you will be matched with an appropriate tutor for the course/courses you select. You and your tutor will then need to schedule a convenient meeting time and location.

If you are interested in becoming a tutor, please contact Jason Stanton at stantonj@hartwick.edu or x4661.
