Peer Tutor Program

Students who complete K201 or K204 with a high level of success are invited to join the Peer Tutor Program—a group of student volunteers who help others complete the course successfully. Peer tutors grow in their understanding of the material by learning to communicate and coach newer students. More than 250 students volunteer as peer tutors for two or more hours per week each semester and participate in special peer-tutor-only events. Peer tutors are an important part of student success in Computer Skills. In fact, corporate recruiting teams often look for peer tutoring experience on resumes as they've learned to expect a powerful combination of technology and communication skills from this outstanding group.
