Peer Tutoring

Students may request a peer tutor for most courses offered at Doane. Upper-class tutors have been recommended by the faculty, have done well in the specific course(s) for which they tutor, and have received training to enhance their tutoring skills. Tutors clarify concepts, suggest ways to organize class notes, and help students prepare for exams. Some tutors also offer group test review sessions before major exams in selected courses.
