Achieving Academic Success at Colgate

Peer tutoring through the Center of Learning, Teaching, and Research (CLTR) is available free of charge to Colgate students who need support in one or more of their current courses. CLTR maintains a list of Colgate undergraduates who have been nominated by their professors – and have agreed – to serve as tutors. The service is mainly limited to introductory courses in biology, chemistry, economics, mathematics, and physics, but the CLTR can help work with students to provide support in many other courses. Please contact Associate Director of CLTR, Karyn Belanger, at, or feel free to reach out directly to your professor. Additionally, the link, "tutoring resource directory" below, outlines the support that is available across campus.
