How can students request tutoring?
Students can visit lss.edgewood.edu under Student Resources to find a Tutor Request Form.
Why is there a deadline to request a tutor?
The last day to request a Peer Tutor, is a week after the last day to drop a class (about a month before the end of the semester). Tutoring services strives to help students become independent learners--part of that is helping students make responsible decisions regarding their academic coursework. While we are able to help someone who wishes to work on a class throughout the semester, tutoring is not as effective for damage control or last minute cramming. Plus, Peer Tutors are students too, so this is also their busiest time.

Whom do you hire?
We look for students who received a “B” or better in the courses they wish to tutor and have a firm understanding of course content. We need students with good communication skills who can work with students with a variety of different needs. It is important that Peer Tutors are sensitive to the needs of all students and have confidence in their abilities. Patience is essential.
Are students paid to tutor?
Yes. Peer Tutors are work study students and are paid the current work study rate.
