What is the Peer Tutors Program?

The Learning Resource Center's (LRC) Peer Tutoring Program provides one-on-one tutoring for students in a variety of subject areas throughout the semester, either during scheduled appointments or on a drop­-in basis. Tutoring sessions take place in the Reading and Writing area or Math and Science area of the LRC. Once tutors are accepted into the program,  they are trained using College Reading & Writing Association tutoring methods (CRLA) in a semester-length online SJCC course, LS 90.  Tutors also receive the support of a team of instructors, program coordinators, and other peer tutors throughout the semester.
