Peer Academic Support Network

The Peer Academic Support Network opens on Monday September 14.  You can access the schedule for both one-on-one appointments and drop-in support using TutorTrac.  All drop-in support including the virtual MSRC and ERC is available through the Peer Academic Support Network Slack workspace; anyone joining from a email address can join the space.  Once you are in the workspace, set up your profile with your first name only, and then join the channels for your courses to connect with tutors.  

The Williams College Peer Academic Support Network is made up of a group of trained student peer tutors who

  • Address your questions/concerns regarding course content.
  • Facilitate development of course-specific learning strategies.
  • Support development of your critical thinking skills related to course material.
  • Encourage and motivate you to achieve success.

Peer Tutoring is designed to help students clarify course material or to review background material.  It does not substitute for class attendance or well-organized study.

In fall 2018, the Peer Academic Support Network worked with over 300 Williams students in over 625 individual tutoring sessions, in over 662 visits to the MSRC and ERC, and in workshops.  Tutor availability of any kind (as well as information on some office hours for some professors and TA sessions for some courses) is available using Williams’ TutorTrac.
