Parker University, through the Peer Tutoring Program, provides assistance to students seeking additional support outside the classroom. Students receive tutoring from their peers who have demonstrated high academic achievement in their courses. The program is managed by the Center for Teaching and Learning and it affords students with specific instructional needs the opportunity to obtain extra academic assistance at no cost.
Two types of peer-tutoring are offered for a variety of courses and subjects at Parker University:
- Subject-Specific Tutoring: Tutors work with groups of students in either a lab or classroom setting to address students’ academic needs and questions. The tutor works with a faculty member from the course(s) to determine areas of focus for tutoring sessions.
- Trimester-Specific Tutoring: Tutors work with a group of students to address individual areas of concern from various courses within a trimester curriculum. Examples would be "Tri One Tutoring" sessions which could cover Biochemistry I, Cells & Tissues, Developmental and Applied Anatomy, and other Tri 1 courses, depending upon the students' needs and trimester schedule.
Times and locations of tutoring, organized by subject, are located to the right. To participate in tutoring, simply attend any of the sessions listed.
