Peer tutor program
Creating SuccessNo matter what you're studying--agriculture to apprenticeship, firefighting to university transfer--you are eligible for tutoring help.
Lakeland's program matches students who ask for help with an experienced student (who has completed the course) or a classmate. Tutoring can be one-on-one, or can be part of a larger session for a specific subject such as math.
If you need a tutor, this service is free. Learn more about how to get a peer tutor.
If you are a tutor, you'll be paid. You'll benefit from training, building your resume and helping a classmate. Learn more about how to be a peer tutor.

Asking for help is a sign of maturity. It means you're strong enough to recognize what you need.
So if you realize you need a peer tutor, then you've taken the first step. The second is coming to the Commons and signing up.

Some courses just seem to require extra help.
Group tutorials are often arranged for botany, mapping, chemistry, math and accounting. Sometimes they start at the beginning of the semester. Sometimes the first round of exams exposes a need for group tutoring.
Check in to see if there's a group tutorial for a subject you find challenging.
