What is Peer Assisted Learning?

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) is the place to develop effective learning strategies and get free, one-to-one, course-specific help. Western and Affiliate University College students are welcome. Help is provided by Learning Peers who are trained, upper-year Western students who have excelled academically, and are ready to help you SUCCEED.

What students are saying about Virtual Peer Assisted Learning...

"I'll definitely be coming back to get help. This was
so beneficial and a great resource."

My session was very helpful and I loved going through questions
step by step to clarify any questions I had. A great learning
opportunity and I am excited to return in the future."

The Learning Peer I worked with was incredibly helpful.
PAL has helped me tremendously with my academics.
