There are many ways to find academic help on campus!
Need help with math, computer science and accounting and finance courses? There are many drop-in sessions you can attend throughout the term to get the academic support you need!
Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) Tutoring
Computer Science (CS) Consulting Centre
If you are taking first or second-year computer science courses and need some help, you can meet with an Instructional Support Assistant (ISA) or Instructional Apprentice (IA) in the CS Consulting Centre (MC 4065).
Check your course syllabus or course website for information on specific advising hours for your classes.
Things to remember
- To get the most out of the consulting centre, find times that are convenient for your schedule and avoid the peak times by starting your assignments early. Peak times are just before assignments are due.
- Please bring your course notes with you so that your problem can be efficiently handled. If want help with a particular problem, please bring your rough work with you because it will help the ISA/IA figure out what you're having difficulty with.
- Once you've been given a hint to solve a problem, you should work on the problem alone until you either complete it or need more help. Don't expect complete solutions to problems since you won't learn that way.
- Please don't use the consulting centre as a social club or a lunch room.
- Please don't remove furniture from the consulting centre.
- The Student Life Centre has a bulletin board for private tutors to advertise their services. For more information, see the Turnkey Desk in the Student Life Centre.
Mathematics Tutorial Centre
We want to help students make the transition to university-level mathematics by supplying tutors who provide assistance on an individual basis to students in first- and second-year math core courses.
Tutors are available in Math and Computing (MC) 4066 and 4067, and the Mackenzie King Village multipurpose room.
If you have any questions or concerns about the Tutorial Centre, please contact the Co-ordinator Jordan Hamilton.
Things to Remember
- To get the most out of the Tutorial Centre, find times that are convenient for your schedule and avoid the peak times by starting your assignments early.
- If you consult one of the tutors, please take your course notes with you so that your problem may be efficiently handled. Furthermore, if you need help with a particular problem, please bring your rough work with you in order to help the tutor in identifying your difficulty.
- Since you will not learn very much if a tutor tells you how to solve a problem, please do not expect the tutors to show you a complete solution. Once you have been given a hint, you should work on your problem alone until you either complete it or need further assistance.
- Please do not use the Tutorial Centre either as a social club or as a lunch room.
- Please do not remove furniture from the Tutorial Centre.
- Other tutoring resources
