Student Leadership Opportunity - Peer Tutoring

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A FANTASTIC LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITY ON CAMPUS?

If so, apply to become a Peer Tutor Today!

Peer Tutoring brings successful students currently attending Middlesex to work with other students as peer tutors in our Academic Support Centers. The Peer Tutoring Program employs students who have successfully completed the courses in which they will be tutoring. The Peer Tutoring Program is certified by the College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA).

What do Peer Tutors do?

The tutor is a guide, a helper, a coach, a listener, a friend and a motivator. The goals of tutors are to foster active learning, independence and motivation. The Academic Centers for Enrichment Department offers a challenging and supportive environment for all students. For most students a tutoring session consists of:

  • Identifying strengths and weaknesses
  • Setting goals
  • Finding a purpose for the assignment
  • Exploring the subject matter
  • Breaking the task into smaller parts
  • Finding solutions and answers

Qualifications:

Peer tutors are required to have successfully completed the courses they will tutor with a B+ or better and have a recommendation from the faculty member for the subject(s) they will tutor.  Peer Tutors must maintain an overall cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above.
