Deeper understanding, extra practice at applied theory, and intellectual skill building combine to differentiate students who attend tutoring and those who don’t. Tutoring is student-led support for success in courses. Peer Tutors guide learning while working through difficult course concepts and example problems in 1-On-1 and/or Small Group sessions. Students can attend scheduled sessions as needed throughout the semester, and should be prepared to bring specific questions and course materials.

What We Do    

Peer Learning Consultants offer 30 minute sessions throughout the week for students to reserve as needed to ask specific questions about difficult course concepts and/or assigned homework problems. Sessions are available in 1-On-1 and Small Group formats to student learning. Students should bring their course materials, notes, and calculators. Session dates, times, and locations are posted on TAMUG TutorTrac in Howdy. Questions may be directed to learningcommons@tamug.edu.


Course Support is for students who are working to be the best in their field, reach for a higher GPA, and better understand course concepts. Each session gives students individualized attention that they don't get in a crowded classroom, identifies a person's learning style, and improves understanding of difficult course material.
