Course-specific peer tutoring

We offer one-to-one, course-specific tutoring. Loyalist College students who are experiencing academic difficulty, or who wish to improve their grades, are matched with upper-year students who can provide academic support.  

Drop-in writing support

We offer drop-in writing support to all Loyalist College students. Non-judgmental support is provided at all stages of the writing process, in all disciplines across the College. Tutors strive to assist fellow students in becoming confident and competent writers by offering feedback and suggestions for improvement. 

As students themselves, tutors are not editors and provide no guarantee that the work for which support was provided is perfect. Tutors will not “fix” the content of the material presented to them, but will work with students to improve the quality of the work by enhancing the student’s strengths and working with them on their writing challenges.

If you would like to access this service, please stop by Tutoring Services located in the Student Success HUB on the upper mezzanine, above the Student Access Lab (SAL). No appointment required.

Steps to tutoring success

  • If you are having academic difficulties, speak to your professor and determine areas that could benefit from tutoring. 
  • Apply for tutoring early in the semester. Students who wait to access this service may have difficulty catching up.
  • Attend classes regularly and take thorough notes. Tutoring cannot help students who do not attend classes.
  • Do not miss your tutoring appointments. If you are unable to attend an appointment or are going to be late, contact the tutor ahead of time.
  • You cannot approach a tutor to ask for specific information regarding tests and examinations that they may have previously written.
  • When using drop-in services, please do not wait until the day an assignment is due to seek help.
