The History Peer Mentoring Program at The University of Alabama was first introduced in 2011. During the past decade the Department has recruited hundreds of peer mentors, who in turn have helped thousands of students maximize their performance in the Department’s courses by tutoring their fellow students, helping to develop their study skills; improve their test-taking strategies; and promote active reading.
Though the program was initially intended for students enrolled in introductory survey courses, it is now offered for all undergraduate courses in the department.
Peer Mentors also assist students with improving their writing skills, offering advice and feedback to help students write their best possible paper for any given course.
Peer Mentors meet on Wednesdays from 9 am to 3 pm in 257 ten Hoor Hall. Students can come in at any time during those hours to meet with a Peer Mentor. Peer Mentors continue to offer remote appointments via Zoom as well.
