PEER TUTOR REFERRAL

For courses not offered in the Lab, we have a referral system. After receiving a request, we will try to identify a peer tutor for that class. Please be advised that the recruiting process might take up to two weeks and sometimes longer, so submit your request early on. The ASAC cannot guarantee a tutor will be found for every class. There is a modest fee for this option, payable directly to the peer tutor at the session. To request a peer tutor for a class not offered in the Lab, please fill out the peer tutor request form.
