The Peer Mentor Program partners current ACPHS students with new students to boost their motivation, transition, and success at ACPHS.
With guidance from Academic Learning Services, Peer Mentors provide a strong intellectual and social foundation for incoming students that will enhance their personal and professional growth throughout their education.
Peer Mentors introduce students to campus life, answer questions, and give advice on being a successful student in one-on-one settings and during events.
The Peer Tutoring Program provides academic assistance that encourages, promotes, and fosters independent learning skills.
Peer tutoring is generally available for all the core science and math courses for most academic programs on both campuses.
Tutoring occurs in individual and small group settings to emphasize the rich value of cooperative learning and reinforce time management skills.
Tutors are current ACPHS students who have already taken the course, have been approved by a faculty member, and have received training.
Peer tutoring opportunities are available on both the Albany and Vermont campuses. Distance education technology is used to facilitate training for and delivery of tutoring services.
