CDL Peer Tutoring

Welcome to the Center for Distance Learning's Peer Tutor Program

Welcome to the Peer Tutor Program. The Peer Tutor Program encompasses three program levels of support: peer tutor, academic coach and course assistant.

Looking for a tutor/coach? Are you a student who is:

  • seeking assistance with course content, material and assignments?
  • needing skill development in the area of time management, studying or other areas?
  • requiring assistance with navigating Moodlerooms and/or other software tools?
  • new to SUNY Empire State College?

The Peer Tutor Program provides tutoring and coaching services, complementing already available college resources, to those students needing extra assistance with their studies and/or needing guidance, encouragement and skill development. A trained peer tutor and/or academic coach will be assigned based on the details of the student's request.

If you are in need of assistance with your course(s), guidance and/or skill development, please go to the  Request a Peer Tutor/Academic Coach  link for more information and to request a peer tutor/academic coach. Please note, tutors/coaches are not guaranteed. Every effort will be made to find a peer tutor/academic coach for each request received. 

Looking to tutor/coach/assist? Are you a student who has:

  • an interest in tutoring/coaching/assisting another student or a group of students and/or entering the teaching field?
  • strong communication skills which lend themselves to tutoring by phone, e-mail and other electronic communication means?
  • earned a B+ or higher in CDL courses?

The Peer Tutor Program is always accepting new applications. If you are interested in becoming a peer tutor/academic coach/course assistant, please review the information in the Become a Peer Tutor/Academic Coach/Course Assistant  page and complete the Peer Tutor Application and other required forms.

NOTE: Please review the two types of tutor opportunities, peer tutor and course assistant. These roles have different expectations.
