Northwest College

About Peer Tutoring

Free tutoring assistance is available to NWC students enrolled and regularly attending the course for which the request is made.

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. 

Peer Tutoring Services offers individual, small group, and drop-in tutoring. 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, request 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

Every effort will be made to accommodate student requests for tutoring. However, there may be certain circumstances (i.e. scheduling incompatibility, availability of tutors, etc) in which tutoring services may be delayed or unavailable.

Tutoring is a support service and not a substitute for classroom instruction.
