Mission Statement

The Harvard-Westlake Peer Tutoring Program is a student-run organization founded with the intention to provide support to faculty surrounding academic support for students while upholding the honor code and maintaining academic integrity.

General Program Information

Peer tutoring is a service offered to all Harvard-Westlake students that provides an array of services to the community. Students can be tutored in Math, Science, History, and World Languages. In working with departments, we ensure that we are giving quality and Honor Code-compliant assistance to students. 

Each tutor is selected via an application process in which a teacher recommendation and a personal statement about why they want to become a peer tutor are required. Furthermore,  students are provided guidance and formal training by all members of the Learning Center team to equip them with the skills necessary in providing aide to peers.

In addition to tutoring the Harvard-Westlake curriculum, sessions to help students with study skills and organization are offered. The program is entirely student-run because alternative environments in which to learn can be vastly beneficial to our education.
