The Academic Strategy Peer Tutoring (ASPT) program is specifically designed to help new students navigate the transition from high school to college.  Academic Strategy Peer Tutors serve as academic mentors and role models and work with students throughout the semester to develop academic skills including: study skills, time management strategies, note taking skills, and test taking strategies.

While the ASPT program largely supports first-year students, any student can choose to work with an ASPT. 

Academic Strategy Peer Tutoring is available during the fall and spring semester.  Students needing assistance over the summer should email academicsupport@framingham.edu.
