Mentoring Information

Peer mentoring is available to Simpson University students through the Academic Success Center. Our major focus is on the core level classes, but we do provide mentoring as available for upper level classes. Students are expected to come having completed the reading and assignments for which they desire clarification on and help understanding. Mentors will provide students with techniques to learn, organize, and understand the information that is presented in class and through the texts. Mentors will not do your homework for you. For more information or for the mentoring schedule contact the ASC.
