About Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring is finished for the year but will return in September 2019!

Free Peer Tutoring is available in the Life Sciences Learning Common (LSB 104) during the Fall and Winter semesters (except for the final exam period and instructional breaks). Peer Tutors are volunteer undergraduate students who have performed admirably in the courses they tutor. Once you come to LSB 104, find a Peer Tutor wearing a red PT armband (shown below) and they will assist you to the best of their ability. You are encouraged to use this resource to help with understanding, have a discussion on the material, or to delve deeper into specific concepts.

If you have any questions, such as asking for help with a course not on the schedule, please do not hesitate to email at bctutor@yorku.ca.
