Small-Group Peer Tutoring

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

Small-Group Peer Tutoring will run remotely during Fall Quarter 2020.  Sign-up is required. Sessions begin Sunday, September 20.

TO SIGN UP: Use the sign-up link to sign up for a 30-minute time slot. (You will need to create an account the first time you use the sign-up system.) There is space for several students per time slot. You can sign up for more than one slot, and you are able to make appointments for up to one week in advance. Once you sign up, you will receive the session Zoom link.

TO CONNECT:  You can join by clicking the link directly, or by entering the Zoom ID into the Zoom app. (You will need to be logged in to Zoom with your Northwestern netID and password.)

TO ASK A QUESTION once you are in the Zoom meeting, you can use the chat feature or simply ask using your mic. We ask that you help ensure everybody has a chance to ask questions and contribute to conversation. You can all learn from one another!

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 help students learn and understand effectively.
