Our staff are outstanding undergraduate students recommended by Kutztown University faculty. They have received top grades in their courses and bring experience, expertise, and enthusiasm to learning. Tutoring helps students to improve course content knowledge and study strategies and is designed to support the individual learning goals of our students.
Peer Tutoring is a free service for undergraduate students at Kutztown University. Tutors are available for most 100 and 200 level courses and some upper-level courses. Tutoring Services attempts to find tutors for all classes that have tutoring requests; however, it is not guaranteed that tutors will be available for your requested course.
Peer tutors are students like you, who have taken the course before or who have taken more advanced courses in your subject area and are trained to help you learn the course material. They will meet with you either 2 or 3 hours a week in the Rohrbach Library.
Academic Peer Mentor (APM)
An Academic Peer Mentor (APM) is a knowledgeable student who has a general understanding of Kutztown University's processes, academics, and resources to enhance students' academic experience. APM's provide academic services to undergraduate peers and useful if you would like to discuss your holistic learning approach rather than one specific course.
An Academic Peer Mentor (APM) is a trained undergraduate student who offers academic readiness assistance like time management and academic organizational skills. For example, rather than helping understand math homework, an APM might help you plan time to do homework, connect with a math tutor or lab, and suggest testing strategies for success on an upcoming math exam.
