Peer Tutoring and Consulting: Students Helping Students
DePauw provides peer tutoring and consulting services to help all students succeed and excel in their courses, as well as in their co-curricular and experiential pursuits. Each tutor is trained to help students develop the skills they need to become independent learners.
peer tutoring and consulting services include:
- Writing (Writing Center within The Learning Commons in Roy O. West Library)
The DePauw Writing Center tutors provide writing help to writers of all levels of ability. As a DePauw student you can bring drafts of your written work for ANY class including but not limited to First Year Seminars, "W" Classes and Senior Seminars.
- Speaking and Listening (S Center within The Learning Commons in Roy O. West Library)
By working with S consultants, students can get help preparing presentations, performances, developing discussion and interviewing skills, and preparing effective visuals.
- Quantitative Reasoning (Q Center within The Learning Commons in Roy O. West Library)
Often students get to college and find that they need some extra help in classes that are based on problem solving and quantitative reasoning. The Q-Center is the place to get that assistance. Tutors are trained to help you develop good skills that will carry over into other areas of your education and life.
