Peer Learning Program
Looking for help with one of your courses?
We're here for you! Learning Peers are students just like you who learned how to master their courses. They are the best kind of study-buddies, offering friendly support, a wealth of subject-specific knowledge and study strategy ideas. It's more than tutoring; it's like a personal trainer for your academic life.
We support a wide variety of courses*, for FREE.
Registration is now open! Complete your registration form early for the best chance of being matched. Be sure to log in to your @mtroyal.ca Google account first. Registration closes October 10.
Looking for more help? Be sure to take advantage of subject specific help rooms and professor office hours. Consider setting up your own study group or try out our study skill workshops and appointments with Writing and Learning Strategists.
*Note: Learning Peers are not available for GNED, ENGL, or COMM courses.
