Welcome to Peer-Assisted Learning (PALS)!

PALs Tutoring Groups are learning communities, focused on a specific course and section, where students practice positive study habits, learn new study skills/strategies, get to know their classmates, and strengthen their understanding of class content. PALs groups meet weekly, led by a trained Group Facilitator. Group Facilitators are CWU students who have successfully completed the course with a 3.3 or higher. PALs sessions will include an overview of key concepts for that week, problem-based group activities and practice problems, test preparation, and study skills/strategies.

PALs sessions start the second week of classes and will be in-person and/or online through Zoom. Please check each individual subject for specifics on locations, dates, and times.

Please note that the schedule is populated during the first week of classes so we can survey students about the best possible meeting times. The schedule will update as we finalize times and be complete prior to the second week of classes each quarter. While most sessions are in-person, some subjects may be online only or have an online option. For security purposes, students will access their Zoom sessions for PALS Fall quarter through links in their Canvas courses. For these online sessions, please make sure to check Canvas to connect with your PALS facilitator.
