Add Peer Connections to Your Syllabus

How can I highlight Peer Connections on my course syllabus?

Feel free to use the information below! We have two formats to choose from.


 

Accessible Format:

Peer Connections’ free tutoring, mentoring, supplemental instruction, and learning assistant programs are designed to assist you in the development of your full academic potential and to inspire you to become independent learners. Peer Connections tutors are trained to provide content-based tutoring in many lower division courses (some upper division) as well as writing and study skills assistance. Small group and individual tutoring are available. Peer Connections mentors are trained to provide support and resources in navigating the college experience. This support includes assistance in learning strategies and techniques on how to be a successful student. In addition, Peer Connections supplemental instruction (SI) leaders assist professors in select courses by running study groups and review sessions. Peer Connections learning assistants support faculty in the classroom by engaging students directly in various activities.  Peer Connections also has a study space, desktop computers, and success workshops on a wide variety of topics. All services are virtually offered at this time.  When it is safe to return, we will do so while continuing to offer the option for students to participate online or in-person.  For more information on services, hours, locations, or a list of current workshops, please visit Peer Connections' website at http://peerconnections.sjsu.edu for more information.
