Peer Assisted Learning (PAL)


Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) is your free tutoring service at NIU. We offer regular, weekly one-on-one and small group tutoring to help you succeed in class.

Sign Up for One-On-One Tutoring

You'll be matched with an advanced NIU student who has completed the College Reading and Learning Association tutor training. You and your tutor will decide when and where to meet. You're eligible for up to three hours of tutoring per week, per course. We recommend meeting with your tutor at least once a week. Visit our office in Williston 100 or sign up online to schedule free regular weekly tutoring.

Want homework help? Have a few questions or a lot? We offer free, walk-in tutoring at Grant Towers South, New Residence Hall and Founders Library. No appointment needed. Check the tutoring center schedules and stop by to get the help you need.
