All currently enrolled UGA undergrad students can meet with a Peer Tutor who has successfully completed the course being tutored to discuss class content, ask questions, and share study tips and resources. Tutoring is free and available in the form of one-on-one appointments and study pods both in-person at locations across campus and online via Zoom.

During a peer tutoring session, whether it’s a one-on-one appointment or a study pod, you will engage with a Peer Tutor to find solutions to problems, learn best practices for studying course material, and gain a deeper understanding of the course content. In order to benefit the most from a peer tutoring session, you will need to come prepared with material and questions that you would like to discuss with a Peer Tutor.
