Peer Tutoring

What Is It?

The University of Winnipeg Peer Tutoring Program provides first language and English language tutoring in particular subjects.

How Does It Work?

  • Students meet with tutors one-to-one to receive help with courses, study skills, paper writing, exam preparation, and doing assignments.
  • Students can choose to be tutored in the language of their choice (subject to availability of Tutors).
  • Tutoring is available for select introductory courses, academic writing skills, as well as a limited number of upper year courses. Fill out and submit your Tutor Request Form to determine if a tutor is available in your subject area.
  • Each student can receive up to 2 hours of free tutoring per week.

NOTE: Additional courses and areas of tutoring may be available in the future, as well as additional first language tutoring options. Languages and subjects listed here are subject to change without notice.

Who Is It For?

  • This program is for any international, immigrant or refugee undergraduate student who needs more support and help with successfully understanding and completing courses.

What Do I Do?

  • You can register online 
  • You will be matched with a tutor within 7 days of submitting your application, if one is available in your subject area
  • If no tutor is available in your subject area, we may refer you to another tutoring program, or you may be put on a Wait List if the tutor for that subject is unavailable
