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.
  • Many peer tutors enjoy tutoring just for the experience of helping fellow students succeed in courses in which they have done well themselves.
  • 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 get paid for their time and the hours worked can be used toward work study or college employment based on eligibility

Who is eligible for tutoring services?

  • All Hartwick College students are eligible for a peer tutor. There are occasions where a tutor may not be available in a course.
  • Students are encouraged to first speak with their instructor and if they are taking a class that offers Supplemental Instructors, they are urged to first meet with them during SI hours.

How do I get a tutor?
Peer tutoring is available to students in a variety of courses and subject areas. 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 turned in at the Center for Student Success, you will be matched with an appropriate tutor for the course/courses you select.
