Peer Tutoring is a research-based academic support service that has been a part of American Education for centuries. Peer tutors are selected based on past academic achievement and faculty recommendations. Tutors meet one-on-one or in small groups with students to help them grasp fundamental concepts, work through practice problems, and develop a further understanding of the course content. Tutoring helps students develop independent learning strategies that can be used throughout their college experience and as they progress through life.
You do not need to make an appointment to meet with a tutor.
** Simply check the schedule to be sure a tutor will be in the CSA at the time you plan to come in.
**If you plan to receive tutoring for the Praxis Core Exam, please call the CSA at 410-677-4865 to schedule an appointment.

Quotes from Fall 2016:
“The tutor is extremely friendly and brings a positive attitude to all. Even if the course material varied by instructors...she worked through the problems with me as a peer. After attending several tutoring sessions I started receiving As on course work and quizzes. No doubt this tutor has helped me to achieve higher standards for myself.”
“I visited the tutor to help me review my physics exam and show me ways to improve for the next exam. She did not just review the material with me, she helped me understand why I made the mistakes I did, and even got me started thinking about the new material. I believe that she is an excellent tutor!”
My tutor "was awesome! I was able to walk into the test knowing what I was doing and prepared to pass!”
