What is Peer Consulting?
Peer Consulting is a completely free academic support service available for all students of Oregon Tech. Our goal is to provide assistance in all areas, majors, and courses offered at Oregon Tech. Peer Consulting reinforces what you are learning in your classes, fosters your sense of community and strengthens intercultural communication. Peer Consulting helps empower you to become successful in your academic career and reach your graduation goal.
Who We Are
We are your peers, classmates, faculty, and staff. Peer Consultants are typically Oregon Tech students who have taken the same classes you have and have earned a B or better in their areas of expertise. We often have professors and staff that offer their time and assistance in the Center as well. Look around you. The person sitting next to you in the CU or your professor in class just might be a Peer Consultant.
What We Do
We are here to help you develop the skills you need to be successful both academically and professionally. Peer Consultants can help clarify ideas, concepts, theories, and skills your professors are teaching in class. Rather than giving you the answers, we help you learn the methods, secrets, tips, tricks, and abilities to find the answers on your own.
What We Offer
Consulting Across Campus
Sometimes circumstances may require someone come to you. Our Consulting Across Campus allows students the opportunity to study with a consultant in a variety of settings around campus. Whether you meet your consultant in the biology lab, the Res Hall lobby, or the Peer Consulting Center, our consultants are here to help you! Consultant schedule and location information can be found on PCS Online.
So, What Don’t We Do?
In short, we don’t just give you the answers, edit your papers, do your homework, or even check your homework for mistakes. We are not here to teach you everything you need to know; we are here to advise you on how to find the answers and make informed decisions. We make no guarantees that your work will be perfect when you leave. We can only help you as much as you will help yourself.
