LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 25, 2016) — Sometimes, college can be tough. Exams, term papers, research projects and even homework can pile on students this time of year. 

Fortunately for University of Kentucky students, there is plenty of help. Student and Academic Life's new Student and Academic Services unit offers academic support for undergraduates in all colleges.

A popular offering is the Peer Tutoring Program (PTP), which provides free drop-in peer tutoring for students at The Study.

 

Last year alone, peer tutors assisted other students in more than 25,000 tutoring sessions! Watch the video above to discover who leads the effort in helping over 120 peer tutors help their fellow students succeed. 

This video feature is part of our new UKNow series, “Kentucky’s Heartbeat — the pulse of our institution.” The goal is to highlight the people who are working every day to help each and every student succeed inside and outside of the classroom. 

If you know of someone who you think should be featured because of his or her dedication to the student experience, please email us. Who knows? We might just choose your suggestion for our next feature on UKNow!
