PeerTutors for Schools

PeerTutors is easily scalable for classes, departments, colleges or entire institutions. This one platform allows students to manage their own peer-tutoring experience and can even provide easy access to the academic and financial advising, counseling, faculty office hours and reference help available at your school – without additional overhead.GET IN TOUCH
How we help students
Instead of researching and filling out forms or navigating a hodgepodge of virtual platforms, students can view tutor/mentor profiles across multiple programs in one place and schedule a session from any device. They can also make and attend appointments with their advisors, counsellors, faculty and more.
Tutors/mentors from your school manage their schedules and message students directly with SMS/email notifications. Choosing to include volunteer and private tutors/mentors adds support for more subjects during extended hours. Faculty and staff can upload their schedules too, so students can schedule and attend all support services through one platform.
Offering both online and in-person sessions improves access for students studying online, commuters and students who need last-minute help. And when students are stressed, the ease of scheduling and attending an appointment is crucial. Schools that make all support services accessible improve retention rates.

A student can book for an online or in-person session, depending on your administrative settings. Data for both session types is collected in the same platform.
After the session, students can rate their tutors. If something goes wrong, either a student or tutor can report misconduct so you can address it immediately.
Peer tutors and school faculty/staff can set their availability. Students view the calendar and make a selection.
Students can quickly search for tutors at their institution across departments. If your school decides to connect additional support services to PeerTutors, students can also schedule and attend appointments with academic advisors, financial advisors, counselors or even faculty office hours.
