What do peer mentors do?

FREE tutoring and mentoring in the library every day at lunchtime.

Peer mentors post their profile and photo on the Peer Mentor profile board. Students in need then use this board to pair up with a peer mentor who can help them. Each Peer Mentor is signed up for 2 shifts a month a calendar, so students can easily make lunch appointments for help
