Peer Tutoring Program

Welcome to the Peer Tutoring Program!

The Peer Tutoring Program supports a total of 23 subjects: 20 undergraduate and 10 graduate.

As of the spring 2014 semester, we offer graduate peer tutoring in Criminal Justice, Computer Science, Education, Forensic Science, MBA, Statistics, and SPSS.

All peer tutors are undergraduates specializing in the courses that they support. Undergraduate Peer tutors primarily work with students on 1000- and 2000-level courses in and related to their major/majors. Peer tutors are a great resource as they have taken the same classes that you are taking, often with the same professor(s).  Therefore, they are prepared to give you “the inside scoop” on what you need to do, and how you should do it, to succeed in the course.

Our peer tutors are situated around campus, typically in areas associated with their department.  Therefore, you will find the Engineering tutors in the Buckman Hall 1st Floor Study Lounge, the Fire Science tutors in the Fire Science 1st floor lounge of Echlin Hall, and so forth. Students are strongly encouraged to make an appointment with a tutor, but will be seen on a first-come, first-served, walk-in basis.

You can make an appointment by calling reception at (203) 932-7215.

For more information, contact our Peer Tutoring Program Coordinator at (203) 479-4856 or

You may also contact Debbie Malewicki, Director of the Peer Tutoring Program, at or (203) 932-7415, or Pavelle Wesser-Mitra, Interim Associate Director of the Center for Learning Resources, at or (203) 932-7213.

 We look forward to helping you earn great grades this year!
