Peer Tutoring is an entirely APC funded program providing tutoring assistance to all Acalanes students. Tutors are eager to help students with test prep, essay writing guidance, lesson clarification, how to create a weekly work schedule and much more. This 20 year-old program is run by two professional staffers who manage the selection and training of junior and senior student tutors. The tutors and directors provide academic support while connecting personally with each student to provide an encouraging and engaging environment.

The study center is a casual yet academic setting where all students can get assistance in any subject. No appointment is necessary.
