We strive 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 residence and MC 3022.
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 lunchroom.
- Please do not remove furniture from the Tutorial Centre.
- Other tutoring resources: The Student Life Centre (SLC) has a bulletin board for available tutors to advertise their services. See the Turnkey Desk in SLC for further information. Also, students in need of private tutoring may want to check a list of tutors at Tutor Connect.
