Peer Mentoring

One-on-One Peer Consultations

Note:  Spring 2019 appointments via our online scheduler start Sunday, January 27. To schedule a 1-1 peer consultation before January 27, email us at academicstrategies@yale.edu.

Each student’s goals, responsibilities, and challenges are unique. An individual meeting with a peer academic mentor can help you identify and focus on your goals and develop the strategies that work best for you.

Here’s what happens in our individual meetings:
  • You’ll get acquainted with your mentor
  • The mentor will invite you to talk about the questions on which you are seeking advice.
  • You’ll discuss what has worked well for you previously, and brainstorm with the mentor new approaches to try.
  • At the end of the session, you’ll create a plan for implementing the new strategies you’ve discussed
  • Set up a future check-in appointment with the same mentor.

All meetings take place in on the mezzanine of the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning on the York Street side of Sterling Memorial Library.
