Peer Tutoring

The Peer Tutoring program at Oberlin promotes student success through peer-to-peer learning and collaboration. Peer tutoring is available via drop-in sessions or by individual appointment and is free of charge to Oberlin students.

Peer tutors are content specialists who are hired to cover specific courses in which they have already been successful. A peer tutor can help you think through course concepts, provide feedback, develop study strategies, and build crucial skills to succeed in your classes.
