Study Smarter

At Study Lab, we provide tools and resources for you to discover the most efficient and effective ways for you to study. Experiment with strategies to customize a plan that works for you. There is no one-size-fits-all-approach to studying. Explore how you can study smarter, not harder, and make the most of your time at Pitt.

Study Lab is home to a large staff of experienced professionals and students, who serve as guides and mentors throughout your exploration. Tutors are students who have recently been just where you are now and understand your challenges, as well as your goals.

Whether you are looking for a quick on-demand answer, a one-on-one session about that upcoming chem test, a video tutorial about a tricky concept, or to connect to a group of other students headed to med school, there is something here for you.

One-on-One Peer Tutoring

Whether you’re struggling in a course or just want to bump that B to an A, our peer tutors can help. You’ll meet one-on-one with a student like you who has taken the course you’re taking now. Peer tutors offer content support and study strategies to help you do your best. Schedule a personalized study session.
