PEER TUTORING SERVICES for Program Core Courses

PHILOSOPHY: The peer tutoring program is offered as a service to FVTC students and is one of several options which the student may consider if he/she is experiencing academic difficulties in a program course.  The FVTC individual peer tutoring program staff will make every effort to search for a peer tutor and provide an appropriate educational setting for the enhancement of the student's understanding of material in a given course.
