Drop-In Peer Tutoring

Drop-In Peer Tutoring is a great way to get help while engaging with and learning from others in your classes!

Peer tutoring sessions provide a friendly, collaborative environment where you can come to get help, tackle homework, or study. Peer tutoring is a great way to get support with a specific question or issue, or just talk through course material with others. Tutors are experienced with the course material, and trained to facilitate learning in inclusive, active environments. Meet a few of the peer tutors here!

Drop-In Tutoring has four locations across the Evanston campus:

  • Schapiro Hall- 560 Lincoln Street
  • Shepard Hall- 626 University Place
  • Multicultural Center- 1936 Sheridan Road
  • Elder Lounge- 2400 Sheridan Road, Room G15
  • Gender and Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC)- NEW THIS QUARTER, Foster-Walker House 5
    • Sundays 3-5pm: Math 218, 220, 228, 230 & Chem 131, 152, 172

Seeing familiar faces each session really helped, and the peer tutors made me feel extremely comfortable asking questions throughout the quarter, especially as they started to recognize me and remember my name. ”

—Soji Oduneye, class of 2025

The tutors created a welcoming, supportive, and friendly environment. I felt comfortable not understanding everything and being able to ask questions.”

What to Expect

Drop-In Peer Tutoring is just that — drop-in — so  you can stop by at any point during a session. Look for the sign with your class listed, and head over. Tutors are there to listen and help with whatever questions you have — no question is too "basic." Most likely, other students will be at the table, meaning that you can learn from others' questions, too.
