About Us

Welcome to San José State University's Peer Connections. We provide a variety of academic services to promote student achievement and success. Peer Connections staff are dedicated to support classroom instruction and the overall college experience, while peer educators strive to create a learning environment that encourages and supports students' growth and development.

Our peer tutors are trained and nationally certified to tutor students in course content and teach them learning skills to achieve academic excellence. Our peer mentors are also trained and nationally certified as guides to assist students navigating the sometimes unclear paths to their degree.

We encourage you to use this valuable resource on campus, and welcome your feedback. We look forward to seeing you at Peer Connections!
