Instructional Assistants (I.A.)

IAs hold regularly scheduled group review sessions weekly and are available at posted times to answer questions about course material. An IA is attached to a specific course and/or department and is introduced to the class in the beginning of the semester. The I.A. is a student who has been recommended by the faculty to help other students master the course material. Please see the Academic Services folder on My CedarCrest for an updated semester schedule.

Peer Tutors

Our peer tutoring program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Tutors are recommended by the faculty, received training, and hold appointments at times mutually convenient to student and tutor. Tutors are available in most subject areas at the 100-200 level. You will be matched with a peer tutor as quickly as possible, and your tutor will contact you either by phone or via e-mail. To request a tutor, please see our folder on My CedarCrest to download a Request for Peer Tutoring form or stop by Academic Services.
