Peer Tutoring

The Study’s Peer Tutoring Program provides free tutoring services to graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in Loyola. The goal of the Program is to provide students with content-based and skills-based support through a 1:1 peer model. Additionally, the Program aims to provide tutors with teaching experience, leadership opportunities, and professional development.

What are some ways that tutoring can provide assistance? 
  • Reviewing concepts already covered in your classes
  • Completing practice exercises that will NOT be submitted for a grade
  • Creating study guides for tests and quizzes
  • Exploring new content-based strategies 
  • Preparing for assessments (a tutor is an excellent study partner) 
  • Identifying additional resources and support
How should I prepare for my appointment? 

Consider the following as you prepare for your tutoring sesssion:

  • What is your primary goal for the session?
  • Do you have all of the resources and materials that you might need during the session? (books, presentations, notes, etc.)
  • How would you like to use the time during your appointment? (practice problems, review of material, discussion, etc.)
  • Do you have a set of specific questions to ask your tutor? (Try to be as detailed and focused as possible).
