Each year, around 650 students with varied backgrounds and interests work as BSC Peer Tutors. Peer tutoring gives students an opportunity to support a fellow student’s learning, to deepen their own understanding of concepts and materials, to mentor a student in ways to approach Harvard courses, and to further develop communication skills. Graduate students can gain experience working with the undergraduates prior to becoming Teaching Fellows.
You are encouraged to become a BSC Peer Tutor if you:
- are interested in helping other students
- would like to share your enthusiasm for a particular subject
- are sensitive to others' difficulties with their coursework
