We are here to support you and your students by serving as a central connecting point through which students receive academic support from their peers. Peer educators can support your teaching by:
- serving as teaching assistants in your classroom;
- hosting tutoring/office/lab hours to provide additional support for your students;
- leading study groups to help students prepare for exams or better understand course concepts;
- providing targeted support to students you have identified as struggling with course material
Carnegie Mellon's Collected Wisdom: Strategies and Resources from TAs for TAs. This book (available full-text online) is a comprehensive resource for teaching assistants working in labs and classrooms.
Dickson College Resources for Tutors. This page provides links to a variety of resources that might be useful to you or the peer educator you are mentoring in your classroom.
