Peer Tutoring Program: Requesting a Tutor

Posted on

The Office of Student Affairs offers a tutoring program for students who are struggling academically, or who have missed a substantial amount of class time due to illness or other personal problems.

In considering whether to request a tutor, it is highly advised that students first meet with a class teaching assistant. Teaching assistants often are in the best position to provide practical guidance.

Our free, confidential tutoring service is open to all JD and LLM students who have demonstrated need for tutoring. These sessions are designed to assist students who are experiencing specific difficulties in a particular subject.

Tutors are fellow students who have demonstrated academic excellence in an academic area. Tutoring takes place at mutually convenient times, usually 2-3 hours per week.

Due to the limited number of available tutors, students may request tutoring for a maximum of two courses.

Please note: because we rely on student volunteers to act as tutors, we may not be able to assign a tutor in every case. Requests for tutors in more advanced classes can be difficult to fulfill. If we are unable to find you a tutor, we encourage you to speak with your professor and his or her teaching assistant about your specific difficulties.

To apply for tutoring, please complete this survey. If you’d like to learn more about becoming a tutor, you can find more information here.
