History of the Center
UNH is one of the few universities in the country to offer a staff that consists of a large number of professional tutors, as well as some graduate students, and many undergraduate students. The principal advantage of professional tutoring labs is that students receive focused tutoring tailored to their specific needs. Our professional staff is composed of experienced instructors who hold a master's degree or higher in their respective fields and college-level teaching experience. Our highly-competent graduate and undergraduate student tutors are chosen based on the enthusiastic recommendations of their professors and exceptional grades in the courses they tutor.
History of the Peer Tutoring Program
The Peer Tutoring Program is a division of the Center for Learning Resources (CLR) that was launched in the fall of 2008 with four pilot programs. As of the spring of 2012, the Peer Tutoring Program supports 21 subjects, which include: Accounting, Chemistry, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Dental Hygiene, EAS, Economics, Engineering, Fire Science, Nutrition & Dietetics, Physics, Psychology, and Quantitative Analysis. Peer tutors are students who specialize in courses that are in or related to their majors. Undergraduate peer tutors primarily work with students on freshman- and sophomore-level courses. In January 2012, we also began offering limited graduate peer tutoring.
