1. Encourage the student to apply to become a Peer Tutor by completing the Peer Tutor Application Form.

2. Send an email to peertutoring@rrc.ca and include the students name, student ID number, and the course(s) the student can provide tutoring in.

What Do Peer Tutors Do?

At the most basic level, Peer Tutors use content knowledge and familiarity with course materials to help students better understand and apply course content.

Peer Tutors increase success by working alongside Red River College Polytechnic students to improve content knowledge and academic learning skills providing the opportunity to review, practice and question new material learned in class. Peer Tutors also assist in building the foundational skills needed for success at Red River College Polytechnic.

Peer Tutors strive to help students become independent and confident life-long learners through providing tutorial services in a safe, supportive environment that accommodates a diversity of learning and cultural backgrounds.
