  • Peer Tutoring

    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.

    To request a peer tutor please visit us in Rohrbach Library room 30.  If you have any questions please contact us at tutor@kutztown.edu

  • Drop-In Tutoring Labs

    Tutoring Services offers Math, Business, and STEM peer drop-in tutoring labs.  Tutoring Labs are located in the Tutoring Services Office in Rohrbach Library Room 30 or Deatrick Hall. If you have any questions please contact us at tutor@kutztown.edu

  • Supplemental Instruction

    Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a type of academic assistance that targets traditionally difficult academic courses by providing regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer-facilitated sessions. 

    SI sessions are available to students in designated sections of targeted courses, as they are geared specifically to the content and style of a particular professor's approach.  SI Leaders are students who have taken the course before and are recommended by the professor.  Therefore, they know the material well and know how that particular professor teaches it.

    Ask your professor if there is an SI assigned to your class!

    • National data shows that students who attend SI average from one half to one full letter grade above the average of the non-SI group.
    • You will be assisted by SI Leaders who will review lecture notes, help you prepare for tests, and discuss readings.
    • It's guaranteed study time.
    • It's free and you may attend as often as you like
