The Role of the Tutor

We are Peer Tutors –spending our evenings answering questions about homework problems, critiquing papers, explaining concepts and helping our fellow Hanoverians.

We are Peer Mentors - serving as experienced guides to academics both inside and outside the classroom.

We serve an integral yet complex function within the framework of higher education.  We are not a professor, but we will help people to learn. We are not a psychologist, but we may be called upon to provide support and guidance.  We are not a buddy, but we can do our best work if a protégés see us as a friend and mentor.
