ARCHES Peer Tutoring

ARCHES offers one-on-one peer-based tutoring to ARCHES students.  Students are eligible to receive one or two hours of free tutoring per week, per class, each term upon request.  Tutoring takes place in the ARCHES office (Building 1, Room 214) during regular business hours.

ARCHES tutoring runs from the 3rd week of instruction through the 15th week of instruction each semester, tutoring is not provided during the summer. Students are expected to attend weekly tutoring appointments for the entire 13 weeks of tutoring and are provided with a set and consistent schedule.  ARCHES does not provide drop-in tutoring, but students can request support of learning and study strategies.

ARCHES makes every effort to match all student requests. However, we recognize that we may not be able to match all requests. In the event we are not able to match a student with a tutor, we will make appropriate referrals to other on-campus services.

ARCHES Peer Tutors are carefully selected and trained to work with the population ARCHES serves (low-income, first-generation college students, and students with disabilities).

Peer Tutors are CPP juniors (+60 units), seniors, or graduate students who have received a B- or higher in the subject they are tutoring. Peers tutor on a variety of subjects such as:

  • S.T.E.M
  • Humanities
  • Writing
