The Peer Tutorial Program is a program that seeks to provide tutors in all subject areas where there is need. Students are required to meet with their tutors at least one hour per week to insure that they are meeting the goal of tutoring. This program is free of charge to CCRI students.

Who is My Peer Tutor?

Your student tutor (hence peer) should be viewed as a resource aid in helping you to overcome problem areas in your studies, not as a substitute for your professional instructor. Your peer tutor is a knowledgeable, well-qualified individual who possesses good academic skills. Tap your tutor’s resources, learn to utilize those skills which have enabled your tutor to be successful in his/her academic pursuits. Learn through your tutor how to achieve the academic success which you are capable of.
