Peer Tutoring

About the Programme

The Peer Tutoring programme is designed to bring additional academic support to our students, and an opportunity to teach learning for our tutors. The Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) provides training for peer tutors to ensure they conduct their work in a professional, supportive and ethical manner. Peer Tutoring is offered in the STEM fields, in languages, and in writing. Students may select peer tutors by expertise in the online system: tutortrac.yale-nus.edu.sg

The CTL provides one-on-one peer tutoring and open ‘drop-in’  tutoring services for students. Faculty-approved peer tutors are available to consult with students who wish to enhance their academic potential and refresh their conceptual knowledge. Peer tutors are made available at no cost to the student.

These open drop-in sessions and individual tutoring sessions will aim to supplement the many academic opportunities already available to students through their classes, professors, and course-work at the College, but are not intended to replace these learning opportunities. All students, regardless of their academic standing or motivation for seeking peer tutoring, should meet with their professors regularly to discuss their academic progress in the classroom.

Faculty Seeking a Peer Tutor

We ask faculty to nominate strong students to be peer tutors in a given subject area.

If you are a faculty member seeking a peer tutor to support the subject matter you teach, then please email Teaching@yale-nus.edu.sg with the student’s name. Every semester we send a call for nominations out through the Dean’s Friday message for nominations to move forward for the following semester. We do not hire new tutors beyond week 2 of the given semester.
