Peer Tutoring

The goal is to prevent upper-level burn-out as students get to the most challenging part of the curriculum - the junior year

The College of Engineering conducts a successful free tutoring service for high-enrollment freshman and sophomore-level courses.  While extremely beneficial to the high-risk underclassman population, this program fails to meet the needs of upper-level students especially since some of the most challenging courses in the curriculum are at the junior level.  The departmental advising office fields numerous pleas from students and parents to address this need.  This initiative employs high-performing students to perform these services.  The pool of students is drawn from the O’Neal Austin Best Student cohort (students who have excelled in these courses in previous semesters).  Assessment data will be obtained to compare student performance improvement against historical data.  The benefits to students in distress is obvious.  The intrinsic benefits to the student tutors in terms of engagement, service, and leadership development, have the potential to be even greater.  Four tutors are employed each year, compensated through a stipend of $500 per tutor.  Long-term support for this endeavor will be sought from recent alumni in a manner similar to that currently in place for the O’Neal Austin Best Student Awards.
