With a team of undergraduate and graduate students, we focus on 'students helping students': a goal to help each other succeed in academia. We encourage all students to join us in this opportunity to provide extended learning!

The Tutorial Centre is a free service for Waterloo students and will provide help in the following courses:

  • MATH 128
  • MATH 135

The tutorial centre will be available each weekday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm EST (Waterloo time). The tutorial centre will be closed on February 15 and April 2, 2021, as the university will be closed due to public holidays.

Quick tips to keep in mind before your visit

  • Don't expect tutors to show you complete solutions as they want to help you learn!
  • Once you have been given a hint, you should work on your problem alone until you either complete it or need further assistance.
