    CRLA Logo

    Peer Tutoring is a free service provided by the office of Academic Success that can help you succeed. You’ll learn to read more closely, write more critically and think more effectively.

    Individual and group tutoring begins the first day of classes each semester. To schedule an appointment, stop in to Academic Success on the second floor of the Blackmore Library, or call us at 236-6327. Students can also easily search for tutors and appointment times by logging onto TutorTrac at Just use your current Capital username and password to log in and click on Search Availabilities.

    You can also attend one of our regularly scheduled Study and Review sessions. These course-specific sessions are designed to give you more opportunities for study, review and test prep. You can drop in on these sessions – no appointment needed. Courses, dates and times vary from one semester to the next, so contact the Academic Success office for more information.
