Common Hour Review (CHR) sessions are large group tutoring sessions facilitated by peer tutors, and are offered for many of the most highly trafficked courses for which The Study offers tutoring. The Study works with current course faculty to prepare practice problems that are representative of what students can expect to see on the exam. Peer tutors use these practice problems to guide students through exam concepts and will also address any specific questions students may have about topics on the exam as well as best ways to prepare.
For the spring semester, CHR sessions will be held virtually via Zoom from 6-8 p.m. or 7-9 p.m. one to two nights prior to the course's exam date. To view the Spring 2021 CHR schedule, click here. Worksheets will also be made available at all in-person locations leading up to the exam.
The Study has found students who attend both drop-in tutoring as well as CHR sessions, on average, do better in their course than those who attend only CHR sessions. Therefore, we strongly encourage students to also access free drop-in peer tutoring early and often!
