Peer Tutoring is available for a variety of specific courses. During a session you can review course content, master basic concepts and develop more advanced skills under the guidance of a fellow student. Undergraduates meet with a peer tutor in one-on-one or small-group sessions. Tutors are available for English as a Second Language support. The ESL tutors are trained to work intensively on grammar and language issues common to ESL students. Do you need help with writing a paper? The Writing Center has tutors available.
Peer Led Mentoring Groups, at Emory, are based on Collaborative Learning, a successful instruction method in which students work in groups toward a common academic goal, provide an opportunity to work together to explore important concepts, review class notes, discuss reading assignments, practice test-taking strategies, and prepare of examinations. Sessions are facilitated by an Emory undergraduate student recommended by faculty and trained in group faciliatation skills.
SESSIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR BIOLOGY 141, CHEMISTRY 141 AND 221, PHYSICS 141 AND 151, PSYCHOLOGY 200 AND QTM100. PLEASE CHECK SESSION SCHEDULES FOR TIMES AND LOCATIONS.
These trained peer mentor leaders guide weekly sessions in an effort to apply the following goals:
• Teach students how to think about their learning
• Apply and model what is learned in class/text
• Bring together facts and ideas
• Go beyond answering the question
• Practice using problem sets/complex cases
• Practice how to transfer skills/knowledge beyond the questions on the sheets
"Collaborative learning is based on the idea that learning is a naturally social act in which the participants talk among themselves (Gerlach, 1994). It is through the talk that learning occurs."
