“The best part of being a tutor is helping other students in the community succeed in their studies. Being able to help other students is part of what it means to be a Villanovan.” – Samantha Testa ‘16

VSB Peer Tutors support the academic success of their undergraduate classmates by providing drop-in office hours and the option to schedule individual tutoring appointments throughout the semester. The role of the VSB Peer tutor is to facilitate the student’s independent learning process through a collaborative partnership that focuses on increased understanding of course content and exploration of successful strategies in approaching the material. The VSB Peer Tutor Program is open to all VSB undergraduate students.
