Our last day of tutoring/mentoring services for Fall 2013 is Monday, December 9th.
Welcome to Peer Connections
We, at Peer Connections, have been greatly affected by the recent events at SJSU. First and foremost, we see ourselves as allies and advocates of students on this campus. We offer you a safe place to study, to receive academic assistance and to meet with peers who will listen to your thoughts and concerns without judgment.
We do not have all the answers, but we do know the importance of being there for you. Please watch out for each other and be sure to ask for assistance when you feel it necessary. - November 2013
About Peer Connections
Peer Connections offers free mentoring and tutoring services to undergraduate SJSU
students. We encourage students to become independent learners who are engaged with
their campus experience. Our mentors and tutors are SJSU students, just like you -
they understand the challenges you may be facing, and will assist you to the best
of their abilities.
Mentoring: Our Peer Mentors can assist you with many aspects of university life, including study skills, adjusting to life as a college student, getting connected on campus, and personal issues. For more information, visit the mentoring section of our site.
Tutoring: Our Peer Tutors offer small group, individual, and drop-in tutoring for a number of undergraduate courses. They can also assist you with study strategies and skills. For more information, check out the tutoring section of our site.
Workshops: Every semester, Peer Connections offers workshops on a wide variety of
topics including preparing for the Writing Skills Test (WST), improving your learning
and memory, alleviating procrastination, surviving your first semester at SJSU, and
other related topics. Visit our workshop section for this semester's schedule.
