The Peer Tutoring program at the Student Success Center provides quality, course-specific academic support to University of South Carolina undergraduate students at no cost. Tutoring sessions are tailored to meet undergraduate students' individual questions and needs and to foster independent learning. The Peer Tutors are undergraduate students who have excelled in the course they tutor and have been trained to facilitate discussions on course content as well as study skills and strong academic habits.
Tutoring is offered through 1-hr 1-on-1 appointments located on the Mezzanine Level of the Thomas Cooper Library and drop-in with no appointments necessary in Satelllite locations. Undergraduate students are limited to attending two 1-on-1 appointments per week; there is no limit in attending drop in hours.
