What is a Peer Educator?

Our peer educators – Peer Tutors and Peer Academic Coaches – are current WCSU students who possesses experience in a subject area or field, have exceptional study habits and a passion for learning, are recommended by department faculty, and are trained to help foster active and independent learning. Peer Tutors work with students on content specific needs and questions while Peer Academic Coaches work with students to learn effective study strategies, better organization & time-management, and provide support and accountability as students work to achieve their academic goals.
