Do you need help understanding course content or preparing for tests and exams? Do you have an area of expertise and the willingness to help out other students? Our free Peer Tutoring Program matches students who have identified a need for extra help in a subject with students who have a good background in the subject area and an interest in tutoring.
PAL provides additional assistance with course content through free study sessions with a PAL Leader.
PAL Leaders are College of the Rockies students who have passed the course in high standing, or strong current students who are hired to lead PAL sessions
Sessions are one-to-one for individual courses, or by group study* for some cohort programs as follows:
Note: We will do our best to find a PAL Leader for the program/course you need assistance with, however it is not always possible.
Email the PAL Coordinator with the current or past course(s) you feel qualified to tutor, and include the last grade you received in the course(s). This is not a guarantee of work, as instructors will be asked for their recommendations for tutors, but we always like to have a pool of students who may be interested in tutoring. It is also good to let your instructor know that you are interested in tutoring.
What Do PAL Leaders Do?
PAL Leaders support learning and assist students to understand concepts, problem-solving techniques and improve study skills in the subject area by;
Assisting with organizational strategies specific to the course.
Assisting students with study skills appropriate to the course delivery and assignments.
Identifying appropriate review strategies.
