All tutoring through the Center for Academic Resources is based on the peer tutoring model. Below is an explanation of the model and what it takes to become a peer tutor.
What is peer tutoring?
Peer tutoring is a peer-mediated learning environment in which students serve as academic tutors in courses they have earned a high grade in at UWO. These students work with other students currently enrolled in the course to help them understand the course content, prepare for exams, and become more confident with the material.
Who are the peer tutors?
Peer tutors are students who:
- Have already taken the course and earned a B+ or higher in it at UWO
- Have received a recommendation from a professor who teaches the course
- Have established and maintained a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA at UWO
- Have completed 4.5 hours of tutor training prior to their first session
