EPASS Peer Tutoring and Mentoring
Peer Tutoring is available for a variety of specific courses within Emory College of Arts and Sciences. During a session you can review course content, master basic concepts and develop more advanced skills under the guidance of an undergraduate student (EPASS Peer Tutor) that has successfully completed the course, with a B+ or higher, on Emory’s campus.
Peer Mentor Groups are based on Collaborative Learning, a successful instruction method in which students work in groups toward a common academic goal. Peer Mentor Groups provide an opportunity for students 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 meta-cognitive and group facilitation skills.
The EPASS program has CRLA (College Reading and Learning Association) Level One Certification. EPASS Tutors, through our program, are eligible for ATP (Association for the Tutoring Profession) certification, a nationally recognized organization.
