About Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring Services offers FREE drop-in tutoring for Math and Science courses and Writing tutoring for any written assignment in any course. Northwest College's Peer Tutors are recommended by the academic departments for which they tutor. Peer Tutors represent both academic excellence and service to others. 

Tutoring is for everyone - whether you are struggling in a course and need long term support or if you just need to brush up some skills! Realizing the need for a tutor shows great potential for academic success. 

Students who are academically successful, as well as those who are experiencing difficulties in their coursework, utilize tutoring for a variety of reasons such as:

  • Wanting to improve study skills and time management skills
  • Having a different learning style than the instructor
  • Struggling with an overwhelming workload
  • Needing to establish and maintain good grades/GPA
  • Having difficulty understanding the subject matter

Tutoring is a support service and not a substitute for classroom instruction. Tutoring assistance is available to NWC students enrolled and regularly attending the course.
