Peer Tutoring is a free academic support available to all Humber and Guelph-Humber students. The program aims to assist student learners in reaching their academic goals by facilitating better understanding of course material. 

Peer Tutors

  • act as a supplement to your lectures but do not replace your lectures
  • provide extra review and practice of course material

Appointments are booked in advance and are not available on a drop in basis.
