What you should see in MS Teams

  • Please always remember to check in at the Front Desk when you begin your visit to the tutoring centre.
  • Students should be auto-enrolled in the virtual tutoring centre. If you are registered for one of these courses listed above but were not auto-enrolled then please contact Jordan Hamilton

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.
