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. They are here to:
- 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. Drop-in tutoring will resume on September 16th through to November 29, 2019.
