The Learning Centre: Course Content

Peer tutors help with understanding course-specific concepts while emphasizing study skills and self-reliant learning.  

Tutoring Sessions

Peer tutors meet with you one-on-one. Book an appointment for  25-minute or 55-minute sessions. 

Your tutor can also reserve ongoing sessions for you for a few weeks at a time to work together on specific assignments and skills. 

Find an appointment on the Content Tutor Schedule 

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.
