Tutors and Mentors

The Student Association's Peer Tutoring and Academic Mentoring (PTAM) program is a service designed to offer students a connection to their peers who can provide help with materials presented in their classes as well as general academic advice. Please scroll down to find a PTAM volunteer who can help you.

Peer Tutoring

PTAM Peer Tutors are volunteers who can provide assistance in common core courses most frequently taken in freshmen and sophomore years. They are arranged by field and then individual courses. If you need help in a course that may not be listed here, please contact the SA Director of Academic Affairs for assistance.

Academic Mentoring

PTAM Academic Mentors serve two functions. The first function is to provide assistance in major-specific upper level classes usually taken in junior and senior levels of study. The second responsibility is to serve as a mentor to younger students who need help in choosing classes and paths of study. This is not to serve as a replacement for normal faculty/student advising, but to provide a more comfortable atmosphere to discuss academic plans. The SA encourages students to interact with their academic advisors and use this as a supplement to faculty/student advising.
