PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP Accountancy Peer Tutor Center (PTC)
Peer tutoring is a highly effective means of professional learning and development, both for the tutee and the tutor. My experience consistently demonstrates that cooperative efforts, such as peer tutoring, are more effective in promoting achievement. Peer collaboration is especially effective in fostering creativity, experimentation, problem-solving and critical thinking skills and the learning of deep concepts, a discovery learning approach especially effective in accountancy.
PwC constantly strives to achieve such development and learning for its professionals and is proud to sponsor the Accountancy Peer Tutor Center at the University of Illinois.

The Peer Tutoring Experience
The goal of peer tutoring is to facilitate learning by helping students enhance their mastery of course concepts. Peer tutors also assist with effective study and learning strategies. To get the most out of your tutoring session, please bring course materials with you such as homework, class notes, and textbooks. Please note that while tutors can help with course concepts, they cannot provide case or assignment solutions.
