Need help with your classes? Peer tutoring can help you gain confidence in your test taking abilities by reinforcing the important points of reading material, lectures, or labs. Discussing difficult material with a tutor can make the entire course more understandable. The two of you can cover problem areas or review for exams. You can work on learning skills that will make it possible for you to succeed in all of your college classes.
