Peer Tutoring

Studies show that one of the most effective ways that students learn is from their peers. To that end, the Rutgers Learning Centers' Peer Group Tutoring Program offers peer tutoring to meet the academic needs of undergraduate students in many of the introductory level courses, as well as some of the upper-level courses. The peer tutoring program is FREE and open to all currently enrolled Rutgers University students. The tutoring is available in two formats.

Walk-In Tutoring - No Appointment is Necessary During Scheduled Hours

During the fall, spring and summer session semesters, the RLCs offer subject-specific tutoring to assist Rutgers students with their coursework. This FREE service is coordinated by the Rutgers Learning Center staff.  The RLCs seek to promote a collaborative academic environment where students, faculty, and tutors work together to enhance students' academic and personal growth. The tutoring program is not only for students who are having difficulty with the course material, but also for students who are looking to excel. All tutoring is done on a walk-in basis during the scheduled hours on each of the 4 New Brunswick Campuses. Students are welcome to stop in to any one of the 4 Learning Centers to meet with a tutor during any of the scheduled hours.

The walk-in group tutoring begins the first week of classes and ends the last day of classes. Limited tutoring is available during the reading days and finals based upon tutor availability. Tutoring is available on each of the 4 New Brunswick Campuses:  Busch, College Avenue, Cook/Douglass and Livingston.

The Peer Tutors

The RLC tutors are Rutgers undergraduate and occasionally graduate students who have previously taken the course being tutored and have earned a grade of A or B+. The tutors understand the challenges of the course and are eager to share what they have learned to help you to do well in the course. All tutors receive on-going training both in best current tutoring practices and on tutoring strategies relevant to their tutoring discipline.

One-on-One Tutoring (SAS)

The One-on-One Tutoring Program is administered by the staff and students of the SAS Honors Program and hosted by the RLCs at each of the 4 New Brunswick Learning Centers. SAS Honors' students volunteer their time weekly to provide individualized tutoring to students seeking tutoring beyond the group tutoring format. Subjects tutored vary by semester based upon the subjects offered by the student volunteers. Students are required to sign up 1 week in advance. Sessions per subject are limited to 1 hour per week. Tutoring usually begins the 3rd week of the start of the current semester and ends the last week of classes. The program is available during the fall and spring semesters only.
