Is tutoring available for my class?


Sessions focus on first-year and high-enrollment courses. 

Check the current schedule to see what courses are currently available. 

 

Don't see your course listed? 

You can still book a Consultation appointment for help with study skills, and other tips from experienced students.

Writing tutors can help with writing assignments from any course. 

 

Don't have time to make an appointment? Or not sure if you need one? 

You can stop in to the Learning Centre on either campus during the open hours to talk to the peer tutor at the front desk.

If they can't answer your question, they can help you find the resources you need.
