Individual Peer Tutoring

Free one-on-one peer tutoring is available for many Princeton courses--most commonly for introductory courses in the natural sciences, math, economics, and foreign languages. Individual tutoring may be especially helpful if you feel like you need help with specific parts of a course, or if your previous experience did not include preparation in an essential topic that you need for a class. The aim of  tutoring is to help students develop the skills and strategies they need to independently and successfully engage in the course. 

**Please note that students may work only with tutors in the Princeton undergraduate tutoring program and with Fellows in the Writing Center. Students are in violation of University regulations if they engage the services of private tutors (see Rights, Rules, Responsibilities).

If you are encountering challenges in a course that you believe can best be addressed through individual work with a tutor, contact your dean or director of studies. Free one-on-one peer tutoring is available most commonly for introductory courses in chemistry, physics, biology, math, economics, and foreign languages. Individual tutoring may be especially helpful if you feel like you need help with specific parts of a course, or if your previous experience did not include preparation in an essential topic that you need for a class. Your tutor will set up a schedule with you; if you have difficulty finding a time to meet, don’t give up. Contact your Director of Studies who may be able to assign you a different tutor. Individual tutoring is most effective if you begin early, since it can be more complicated to start meeting late in the semester.
