Peer Tutor at Columbia College

Students can volunteer their time (commitment is 2 hours per week), and assist their peers with various computer skills. They can volunteer in the Library, Student Services computer lab, or in the Learning Centre. They are welcome to volunteer their support in: Microsoft Word and Basic Computer Skills (this includes the Student Portal).

The primary role of the tutor is to offer technology assistance by helping the tutee “learn how to learn” on their own. The peer tutor will not teach course material. They will receive training from the Learning Centre Supervisor and will participate in monthly volunteer meetings.

Please note: Peer Tutoring in the Learning Centre is provided by students who are chosen based on instructor recommendation, academic performance, and the ability to understand their own learning. If you would like to apply, please come to Student Services (Room 211) or the Learning Centre (Room 411) to pick up an application form.
