The mission of peer subject tutoring is to provide academic support to La Salle University undergraduate students who wish to better their understanding or reinforce concepts covered through their coursework.
Peer subject tutoring strives to complement the teaching and learning process by:
Helping students build a foundation or deepen their knowledge and understanding of course content.
Helping students become strategic thinkers/problem solvers,
Helping students become independent learners.
Helping students develop or enhance study skills or strategies,
Helping students attain their academic goals.
Peer subject tutors are formally trained students at La Salle University who assist undergraduate students with coursework in classes they succeed in. Tutors work with students on an individual or group basis, both face-to-face and online. In addition to doing well in the courses they tutor, peer subject tutors enjoy helping other students discover new ways of understanding course material.
Tutoring is arranged by appointment on Starfish (found in the portal).
How to Make an Appointment
Students can schedule a tutoring session by accessing Starfish, our online tutor scheduling system located in the mylasalle portal. Starfish is available 24/7 and can be used to schedule both subject and writing tutoring.
