Peer Tutoring

Are you looking to strengthen your understanding of course content?

The ERC Peer Tutoring program provides BU students an opportunity to meet with a fellow student and ask questions related to their course material. Peer Tutors are BU students just like you, and understand how intimidating certain courses can be. They are here to guide, encourage, and support you in your learning process. All tutors are undergraduates who excelled in their course and are recommended by BU faculty. Our services are free to all BU students!

ERC Peer Tutors know the challenges of your course because they’ve been through it themselves.

Peer Tutors are here to help solidify your understanding of core concepts, guide you through challenging problems, and provide personalized study tips. You will get the most out of your session if you bring questions and think through what concepts you want to focus on during the appointment. Peer Tutors are not professors and do no prepare lesson plans, so please bring questions and practice problems with you.
