‘Tutoring opportunities at FSU enhance our students’ classroom learning experiences and promote further engagement with rigorous academic material.'
Peer tutoring is a process that supports student learning by strengthening a wide variety of educational skills. Working with a tutor can help you make the most of your study time while at the same time providing an enhanced understanding of potentially difficult subject matter. Tutoring is therefore an activity in which students are learning to better help themselves, both for courses in which they are currently enrolled and for their future academic endeavors.
