Achieving Academic Success at Colgate

Peer tutoring is available free of charge to Colgate students who may need support in one or more of their current courses. The Center for Learning, Teaching, and Research (CLTR) maintains a list of Colgate undergraduates who have been nominated by their professors — and have agreed — to serve as tutors. 

While the CLTR is available to help in some subjects, many departments on campus have their own tutoring or homework help sessions. The CLTR provides tutoring services mainly in introductory courses in biology, chemistry, economics, mathematics, and physics. For help in other subjects or in higher-level courses, contact the department directly, refer to the "Tutoring Resource Directory" link below, or feel free to contact associate director of CLTR, Karyn Belanger, at
