KUPT consists of volunteer peer tutoring programs, in which academically successful students tutor younger students to help them with their course work. In the general KUPT program, students receive help in their course work from a tutor who has previously taken the course and earned an A/A+, thus offering students help in knowledge and skills in their particular courses and content areas. Another program exists for EMC (English-mediated course) tutoring to assist students struggling with English as a second language, and a third program assists international students. By participating in the program, tutees can obtain useful learning skills and knowledge for their courses. Tutors can enhance their expertise in their areas of academic interest, and can develop their communication skills, as teaching others can deepen one's own mastery of ones subject area and teaching skills.
