Tutoring Support

In addition to writing and math help, peer tutoring is now coordinated through the Academic Support Zone (The AZ). The AZ also has group tutoring support for Business, Economics and Psychology Statistics. Sunday afternoons are set aside for Engineering tutoring support. Please check back the second week of classes to view an updated schedule.

Students wishing to become tutors should check the SSC website Events Calendar to see dates for Information Sessions.

How do I request a Peer Tutor?

Effective November 2. 2016, when you request a Peer Tutor, you will be required to book AND attend an appointment with a Student Success Advisor in the Student Success Centre (SSC).

Once your appointment is complete your tutoring request will be processed.

To book an appointment, please call the Student Success Centre at (807) 343-8018 or visit us in SC 0008 (located down the hall from LUSU and Campus Tech, and across from the Gender Issues Centre and the Aboriginal Awareness Centre).

How To Request A Peer Tutor:

To sign up for a tutor, you MUST fully complete and submit the following online form in order for us to be able to process your tutoring request:

Please allow for 24 to 48 hours for a follow up e-mail to explain what your next steps are.

Once you have had your meeting with a Student Success Advisor and have been provided with the Peer Tutor's information, it is your responsibility to contact your tutor, make the appointment, and keep your scheduled tutoring times. If no tutor is available, Academic Support Zone & the Student Success Centre will do everything they can do procure a tutor in your requested area.

Becoming a Peer Tutor

We ask that any student who is interested in becoming a Peer Tutor attend one of the Tutor Information Sessions to get more information on the Peer Tutoring program and to pick up the mandatory forms package.

Please click on the "Tutor Information Session" tab below for dates and times of Peer Tutor Information Sessions. If you are unable to make it to one of our information sessions, please contact Anthea Kyle, Co-ordinator of the Academic Support Zone at academiczone.ssc@lakeheadu.ca.

Please note:

  • To be eligible to be a Peer Tutor for a course you must have completed the course and received a final grade of 70% or above.
  • A Professor Recommendation Form must be fully completed and signed by the current Professor teaching the course that you would like to tutor. This form will be provided to you at the Tutor Information Session you attend.
  • You will be required to complete mandatory online training through the Lakehead University website, including AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) training, which is roughly one hour in duration. You will receive access to this training on your MyCourseLink account. When you have completed the online modules, please send an e-mail (stating that you have completed the training) to: tutoring@lakeheadu.ca
You will only be approved to be a Peer Tutor once you have filled out all the pertinent documentation, completed the online training and have been approved by the Academic Support Zone. Any tutoring that occurs before this time, will not be eligible for submission as a Lakehead Peer Tutor.
