Learning Commons peer tutors are your fellow students at BCIT - peers who have achieved superior grades in their previous terms and who understand the pressures and challenges of being a BCIT student. From over 30 BCIT programs [PDF], they are available on a drop-in basis and one-to-one to help you succeed:
- Help you learn and apply new course concepts
- Share learning strategies that have helped them succeed.
Drop-in Peer TutoringThis is a free service for current BCIT students. Drop-in study sessions with peer tutors are scheduled six days per week from September to May. Tutors work with all students who drop-in, so sessions are sometimes done in groups. No appointments are required for drop-in tutoring - just check the current drop in schedule [PDF] to see when a tutor in your program is working. Then bring your schoolwork and join them in the Learning Commons. Watch for the red tutor t-shirts. If a tutor can not make it to a scheduled session we do our best to replace them with a tutor from the same discipline. At Downtown campus we offer drop-in tutoring in Business and CST courses. Limited availability during the summer. Full service will resume on September 16th, 2019.
One-to-One Peer TutoringPeer tutoring sessions at a cost of $20 per hour are available for booking starting Fall 2018. Book your 60-minute appointment online at BCIT's TutorTrac site, then purchase a voucher for the session at the Burnaby Library service desk. Provide the voucher to your tutor when you meet for the session. One to One tutoring will resume on September 16th, 2019.
