ASC peer tutors are UFV students
The tutors at the Academic Success Centre are UFV students, just like you. They've been hired and trained as tutors because they are outstanding students and because they have specific skills and knowledge that enable them to help other students succeed in their academic work.
They come from many academic disciplines
Whether you are looking for help understanding the content of your Psychology course, interpreting the instructions for an essay in English or History, reviewing the process for one of your Chemistry or Biology labs, preparing for an exam in a Kinesiology course, or simply connecting with another student who understands the stresses a university student experiences, we have someone who can help.
When you book an appointment you'll see which tutors can tutor in which subject areas.
They are skilled writers and communicators
Most students come to the ASC for help with their written work, so we always have tutors who are excellent writers themselves and who have excelled at their own academic writing projects at UFV. We give them additional training so they can be prepared for almost any situation a tutee brings to them.
They can tutor in many different languages
Punjabi, Hindi, Korean, Urdu, Vietnamese, Kannada, Tonkani, Tulu, Marathi — these are some of the languages our tutors are fluent in. We can also help you with conversational French and Japanese.

They are part of a larger ASC team
The tutors and the ASC admin team work together closely to identify, develop, and provide the services and resources that will assist you towards your academic goals. If the tutor you contact is not a specialist in the content or skill you want help with, they will know who to connect you with so that you do get that help.
