What is a Peer Educator?

Our peer educators – Peer Tutors and Peer Academic Coaches – are current WCSU students who possesses experience in a subject area or field, have exceptional study habits and a passion for learning, are recommended by department faculty, and are trained to help foster active and independent learning. Peer Tutors work with students on content specific needs and questions while Peer Academic Coaches work with students to learn effective study strategies, better organization & time-management, and provide support and accountability as students work to achieve their academic goals.

Hi! I’m Sara (she, her). I am a senior majoring in public health with a concentration in holistic and integrative health alongside a secondary major in interdisciplinary studies with concentrations in sustainability and theoretical/applied ethics. I plan to work as an interdisciplinarian in the field of public health where nutrition meets agricultural practices. I fell in love with this path as a way to help and empower oppressed groups through education, support, and advocacy. While my passion for this work means I spend much of my free time studying and learning, I also enjoy spending time out in nature, watching TV shows with my husband and our furry roommates, making art, and cooking. As a total nerd about my topic areas, I am so excited to spend time with you building tools for your success in these courses!
