Peer TutoringCASE Boston
Our Peer Tutoring program is a resource available to undergraduate students that is focused on providing course-specific academic support. Peer tutors provide expertise, experience, and encouragement to help students navigate the learning process. They do not provide "answers," but rather assist in problem solving, help focus on assignments, and help foster understanding of course content. Peer tutoring is offered in the form of both individual and small-group appointments.
Appointments are required for peer tutoring. Make an appointment and choose your course from the schedule options.
Becoming a peer tutor
Peer tutors are current MCPHS undergraduate/graduate students; we do not hire outside candidates. The minimum requirements to be considered include:
- Must complete one full academic year at MCPHS
- Must complete an application process
- Faculty recommendation
- Achieve and maintain a 3.0+ overall GPA
- A/A- in the course you wish to tutor
- Required to check MCPHS e-mail daily
- Must attend peer tutor orientation
If you are interested in a peer tutor position with our program, please email the ULN (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information prior to the beginning of the semester.
If you are a faculty member and you would like to nominate a student for a peer tutor position or you would like to request peer tutoring for your course, please contact the Director for Academic Support and Resources by emailing email@example.com before the semester begins.
All students currently enrolled at MCPHS have access to TutorMe, a 24/7 online tutoring platform. TutorMe can be a helpful alternative if our other offerings do not work for your schedule or if you would like more support in addition to what is provided by our other University learning network services.
To access TutorMe, students must login to Blackboard using their MCPHS credentials. Once logged-in, they will select a course and navigate to the Tools page where they will find the TutorMe icon. From there, they can click the icon to be redirected to the TutorMe platform.
The weekly limit for each student is 10 hours. The hours reset on Sundays.
