What students say about Study Partners:

“[My Peer Tutor] was so awesome! She is so knowledgeable on the subject and now I have a much better idea about the information for the chapter I am studying. She is so great at explaining information!”

“[The Peer Tutor] was very helpful and he made me feel more prepared for my exam. He helped me learn at my own pace and took the time to explain the material in depth.”

“I came in with very little understanding of the concepts and [the Peer Tutor] made them easy to understand and apply!”

“[My Peer Tutor] was so helpful! She asked me questions about how I learned best and gave me study advice based off of my answers. She told me about the resources and habits that helped her be successful in this course.”
