SASHP Peer Tutoring

Fall 2022
SAS Peer Tutoring is In-person at the Learning Centers & online via ZOOM!

The School of Arts & Sciences Honors Program (SASHP) Peer Tutoring offers free one-on-one peer tutoring to undergraduate Rutgers University students in a variety of academic subjects.  Our volunteer Peer Tutors are undergraduate students who are enthusiastic about helping their peers be successful in their college courses. All tutors have earned high grades in the courses that they tutor and are members of a Rutgers Honors community.  Peer Tutors complete 6 hours of training through the Rutgers Learning Centers in order to be certified to tutor.

Students seek peer tutoring for many reasons, including:

  • review concepts they are currently learning
  • deepen their understanding of subject matter they have already learned
  • prepare for an exam
  • receive assistance in addition to the help provided by the professor/TA

Students desiring tutoring assistance can book one-on-one, face-to-face peer tutoring appointments via our online scheduler.  All tutoring sessions are one hour in length, and there is no charge for our tutoring services. 

Peer tutoring begins the ~second week of the fall and spring semesters and ends on the last day of classes.  Tutoring is not available during the summer or winter sessions.

  All Rutgers-New Brunswick students can get FREE one-on-one peer tutoring!

Students may schedule appointments four times a week 48 hours in advance.

Want to make the most of your tutoring experience? Follow these steps for academic success:

  1. Go to class, talk to your professor, and attend office hours to discuss any problems you might be having in the course. Tutoring is meant to supplement instruction—not take the place of your class.
  2. Arrive at your tutoring session on time and check-in with the Learning Center’s staff. If you must cancel your session after business hours or within 48 hours of your appointment, please contact the appropriate Learning Resource Center.
  3. Be positive! Learning new or challenging material can be stressful at first, but remaining positive allows you to fully concentrate on the task at hand.
  4. Take an active role in your learning. Come to the tutoring session prepared with your class notes, textbook, and any necessary tools (e.g., calculator, pencil, pen).
  5. Ask questions—lots of them! A tutor is not a lecturer, and collaborative environments are often the most successful ones for learning.
