Earlham College’s peer-tutoring program provides around 1500 hours of tutoring each year. Peer tutoring is a type of collaborative learning where the people involved learn together. Earlham’s peer tutors combine the roles of student and teacher and provide individualized instruction and attention. Students generally seek tutoring on their own initiative for specific course work.
The Academic Enrichment Center (AEC) pays the tutors, which means the service is free to students. Students can request tutoring for up to two hours per course each week. The tutoring schedule is determined by the student and tutor.
