Peer Tutoring

Interested in becoming a peer tutor? Here’s the process:

  1. You must have a faculty recommendation for the course/subject you’d like to tutor in. Faculty can send those recommendations to Heather English, henglish@cottey.edu.
  2. Once recommended, students must complete an application.
  3. Students admitted into the program will need to register for Introduction to Peer Tutoring, PRT 210, taught by Heather English. This is a one-credit hour course that is required. You cannot be a peer tutor if you cannot take this course.
  4. In addition to the course, peer tutors are required to log two hours of tutoring each week in the Learning Center. This is also required.

There are three levels of peer tutoring—Introduction, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each level of training adheres to the College Reading and Learning Association’s (CRLA) certification requirements.
