Need help with a paper, research project, exam or essay for your history class?  Need advice on studying for your HIS 110 course -- or any other history class?  Want to talk to a fellow student instead of (or in addition to) your professor?

Come in to the Murphy Learning Center (second floor of Murphy Library) to talk to our History Peer Tutors.  They are students like yourself, who have already completed many history courses.

Specialty areas:

My specialty areas include modern French and Chinese history, as well as the effects of war on society, the ways societies remember and memorialize peace and war, and peace movements.

Here at the Murphy Learning Center, our tutors are all friendly, qualified individuals. All of our tutors have gotten good grades in the classes they tutor and have been recommended by faculty from their department. In addition to their knowledge our tutors are now taking a class designed to make them effective tutors. Meet our tutors!
