Peer Tutor Program
The Peer Tutor Program recruits exceptional students from all disciplines, to tutor fellow students in course content. Peer tutors have:

 

  • a minimum GPA of 3.0 
  • a B+ or higher in the courses they're tutoring 
  • only tutor in courses that form part of their major or minor
If this is you, and you want to become a peer tutor, simply email Shelly at academicsupport@mta.ca, and tell her which courses you would like to tutor in.

 


How to Get a Peer Tutor
Available peer tutors are listed on Moodle. Simply log into Moodle > Academic Support > Peer Tutor List. If you do not see a tutor listed for your course, contact Shelly at academicsupport@mta.ca.
