Peer Tutoring

We are located in the Gerald J. Ball Library near the computer lab. Stop by and see us for all of your tutoring needs! 

Marian University's Ancilla College peer tutoring program is a free resource and service offered through the Center for Academic Success and Engagement (CASE). Our goal is to help you develop confidence and the skills necessary to be successful at the university level.

The Peer Tutor Center is located in the library. Tutoring is provided on an individual basis or in small groups. Individual tutoring sessions take place primarily in the Peer Tutoring Center. Walk-in tutoring hours also available and take place in the Peer Tutor Center.

Tutoring is available for most entry-level courses, and many upper-level courses. If you do not see a course listed below, please reach out to the PTC staff. Please note that we may be unable to guarantee that a tutor can be found for every course offered at the university.

Walk-In Tutoring

Walk-In Tutoring takes place in the Learning Commons.

When you attend sessions during walk-in tutoring, please make sure you bring all class materials with you. This would include textbooks, assignment descriptions, syllabus, paper, and writing utensils. Bring your calculator if needed for the course.

Walk-in hours for Peer Tutoring begin the second week of the semester. The Learning Commons follows the university calendar and is closed during all-campus masses and university holidays.

Student Cancellation Policy                                                     

Unless there is an emergency, the student is required to contact the tutor at least Six (6) hours prior to your tutoring session. Failure to do so could result in the loss of tutoring privileges. The consequences are outlined below. 

  • After the 1st No Show, the student may receive a written notice and reminder of the attendance policy.
  • After the 2nd No Show/repeated cancelations, the student could face temporary suspension from services and a meeting with the CASE coordinator in order for services to be reinstated.
  • If services have been reinstated for student and the student misses a third (3rd) session, future tutoring sessions are revoked. Student must meet with the CASE coordinator before services can be used for future semester.


Tips to Ensure Your Peer Tutoring Experience is Great

  • Bring all of your materials to the tutoring session (e.g., syllabus, textbook, lecture notes, assignments, problems, lab books, paper drafts, past tests, etc.). This will help the tutor know exactly what you are doing in class and help set reasonable goals for the session.
  • Do the assigned reading and homework before the session. When you prepare for the tutoring session, write down specific questions you have or concepts you want to discuss with your tutor.
  • Ask the tutor to explain not only specific or difficult concepts, but also share study and learning strategies. Your tutor has successfully completed the course and has been recommended by a Ancilla College of Marian University faculty member. They know what it takes to be successful in the course!
  • Do not be afraid to stop the tutor if they are going too fast or telling you too much information at once. Remember, the tutor is there to help you. Never hesitate to ask for clarification. It's ok to say, “I still don’t get it, let’s do it again.”
  • Review the material on your own soon after the session. While tutoring can be a valuable academic resource, it still requires you to attend class and study the material on your own.
  • Talk with other students and consider participating in a study group.
  • Tutors are available to help you, but do not expect the tutor to do your work for you. Tutors will not help with take-home exams. Likewise, tutors will not do your homework for you.
