Tutoring Resources

There are many resources on campus designed to help you understand your coursework. Many of these resources are focused on first-year students, but there are also some applicable to second year students as well.

EUS Midterm and Final Exam Review Sessions

These review sessions are informal study sessions where the EUS provides students the opportunity to practice questions with the help of tutors. In these sessions the EUS will typically provide a package of review questions, based on content from the course, for students to work on in groups. There are always tutors to help answer questions.

Math Learning Center

The Math Learning Centre (MLC) is a space for undergraduate students to study math together, with support from math tutors, who are graduate students in the math department. Please note that while students are encouraged to seek help with homework, the MLC is not a place to check answers or receive solutions, rather, our aim is aid students in becoming expert learners; to develop critical thinking and skills in a mathematical setting.
