Study with a Guide

students studying at the library

Working with a peer tutor gives you key insights to your courses. Peer tutors are students like you who have mastered a particular subject area and want to share their inside secrets with other students. Whether you’re looking to take your grades higher or just want a partner to study with for an upcoming exam, peer tutors at Study Lab have been where you are and can help. Peer tutors will also work with you through challenging course loads if you find yourself slipping behind.

One-on-One Tutoring Appointments

Appointments are one hour long and can take place virtually or in-person. Students can schedule up to two appointments per week, per subject. Appointments can be made up to three weeks in advance. To make a one-on-one appointment, schedule online through the Navigate Student App, call 412-648-7920, or chat with us on our website.
