The Center for Student Success offers peer tutors for some of Hartwick’s most rigorous courses. These services are provided free of charge and on a drop-in basis to help refine students’ study skills and to provide assistance in particular subjects. No appointment is required.
Peer tutors are students recommended by faculty or chosen on the basis of strong performance in a specific course.
