Our professional staff select and train our peer tutors in a collaborative approach that helps students become self-aware, interdependent learners. Tutoring is available in writing and research, mathematics, science, and other content areas.
Due to the coronavirus, we have moved all of our CAE services online for the fall semester. If you are a UNHM student, please visit the CAE MyCourses page to see a list of our current services and/or make an appointment with a tutor!
Work with a tutor individually to collaborate on course material and focus on developing your skills and learning strategies that will help you become a more powerful learner. You are welcome to 1 hour of free individual tutoring per week for each class in which you are enrolled.
Work with peer or professional tutors who facilitate a group study session based on your questions and needs. To make the most of your study group time, please read course notes/textbook sections and attempt any homework problems before you arrive. We look forward to seeing you at one of the study groups.
There are no in-person study groups for the fall semester. Please make an individual tutoring appointment!
Have a quick math question? In addition to one-on-one tutorials and study groups, you are welcome to attend as many math drop-in hours as are available. No appointment necessary. Stop by the CAE at the times listed below.
|There is no Math Drop-In this semester. Please make an individual tutoring appointment!|
Many UNH Manchester courses are paired with class-link tutors. These tutors are students who have been successful in the same course; they attend the class and provide a peer perspective on the material. Class-link tutors may participate in class discussions, problem solving, activities, and workshopping papers.
The class-links are not teaching assistants. Because they have no authority over the students in the class from a grading or instruction standpoint, class-link tutors can offer students a different perspective than instructors can provide.
Working as a peer tutor for the Center for Academic Enrichment is a great opportunity to continue improving your own academic skills and grow professionally while helping peers in our community. As a tutor, you:
- Meet and help your fellow UNH Manchester students
- Earn competitive hourly pay that rises with increased levels of training and certification
- Build your resume for work in any field
- Receive professional certification from the Association for the Coaching and Tutoring Profession
- Improve your own academic skills
- Receive close mentoring and build a network with CAE professional staff and tutors
