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.
Peer Connections has two locations on SJSU's main campus:
- in the Student Services Center (SSC) 600, on the corner of 10th and San Fernando (inside the 10th Street parking garage building)
- and in the Academic Success Center in Clark Hall, on the first floor next to the Computer Lab
