Book a Peer Tutor

 

What is an Appointment?

Appointments give students an opportunity to meet with a Peer Tutor individually to review and discuss course content. Appointments can be scheduled for either 25 or 50 minutes and are held online via Zoom or GoBoard.

All appointments are first-come, first-serve, so you may not always find an availability that works with your schedule. If your course is not supported by Peer Tutoring, then you should complete the Peer Tutoring Course Request form.

Online Appointments

After scheduling an online appointment, you will receive an email from Penji with a personalized GoBoard ID or Zoom URL. This information is also available in the Session Details section of your scheduled appointment within the app. When your appointment is scheduled to begin, you will use that link to access your GoBoard or Zoom. After enabling your camera and microphone, you can communicate with your Peer Tutor as if you were in the same room. You also have the capability to send screenshots through GoBoard and to write and draw whatever you may need to.

Weekly Appointments 

With Penji, students are able to book weekly 25 or 50 minute appointments with a Peer Tutor. Similar to enrolling in a Study Pod, if you book a weekly appointment, then you are expected to attend every meeting. Students who cancel or miss their weekly appointment meeting will lose their weekly appointment time for the remainder of the semester.  

Cancelling or Missing an Appointment

While appointments can be cancelled at any time via the Penji app or webpage, PLaTO maintains a 5-hour cancellation policy that penalizes students should they cancel less than 5-hours before the appointment’s scheduled start time.

Students who cancel an appointment less than 5-hours before the appointment’s scheduled start time are considered a “No-Show” for the appointment. Missing an appointment, being late to an appointment, and/or leaving an appointment early four times in a semester will result in a 30-day suspension period.
