In addition to help from professors' and TAs' office hours, various kinds of peer tutoring and academic skills support are available for all students. Tutoring and academic skills support are used by students in all years and at all levels of understanding.
Get Tutoring in a Subject
Peer subject tutoring (individual and study groups) is offered to current Skidmore College undergraduates only and is free of charge. Peer Tutors are undergraduates who tutor other undergraduates in specific courses. A list of courses tutored during the academic year is on our FAQ page.
Individual Peer Tutoring
Open to all Skidmore College students. Request a tutor and, once assigned, schedule a session at an on-campus location of your choosing. Bring specific questions and study your course material with your tutor.
Book an individual tutoring appointment using our tutoring request form. Difficulty booking? Write to firstname.lastname@example.org with your details and we'll get back to you in one business day and help you book.
Open to all Skidmore College students. Attend any drop-in session. Bring specific questions or just sit and study with other students and know that a tutor is available if you need one.
Join a Study Group
Studying with other students in your class can help you do better. Submit a request to join - or start - a study group, and SAS will match you up with other interested students in the same class. For posted study groups, no appointment is needed.
Get Help with Writing a Paper
Skidmore College provides several different resources for students who would like advice about writing a paper.
- Make an appointment at the Writing Center
- Request an appointment to meet with an Academic Counselor
Academic Skills Support
Not all student academic skills are intuitive. Developing your skills in time management, note-taking, test preparation, overcoming procrastination, reading comprehension, and deep transformative learning, will contribute to your success at Skidmore College.
