Our Team

Study Skills tutoring is facilitated by our most experienced group of tutors, the Peer Mentors.  After demonstrating exemplary performance as course-based tutors, Peer Mentors apply and interview for this leadership position.  Peer Mentors receive additional training rooted in metacognitive development, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling before they begin study skills tutoring.
