Peer Tutoring

What is a Peer Tutor?

A peer tutor is a current Aurora University (AU) student and member of the Academic Support Center (ASC) staff, selected on the basis of academic skill, character, and the ability to communicate well with others. Our peer tutors work one-on-one or in small group sessions with currently enrolled AU students to answer questions on course content, and to aid in comprehension of course material. They have extensive knowledge of the subject they are hired to tutor; they further have the ability to communicate that knowledge to their peers. All peer tutors are recommended by AU professors and approved by the director of the ASC.
