The tutor’s goal is to empower students to become confident, independent learners. In short, peer tutors help students to help themselves.
- Research assistance in more than 100 subjects, ask-a-librarian via chat, text, phone and email, ‘how do I?’ tutorials, and workshops (e.g. Library Resources for Distance Learners).
- Free one-on-one tutorials specific to the student’s own particular development. The goal is not simply proofreading or editing documents, but assisting students to become better proofreaders and editors of their own work.
- Wellness Coaching for students about their: Study skills, Time management and organization, Stress management and relaxation strategies, Sleep habits, and Eating habits and exercise.
- Counseling, workshops, crisis services, psychiatric appointments, and self-help resources to help students learn the skills to cope with the stresses of change and growth so they become better able to learn and thrive.
