We value your constructive comments and criticism. Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions so we can improve our program via email or an anonymous form.


Drop-in tutoring

We will try our absolute best to answer any questions you may have in an 'office hours' type format. Feel free to drop by during any of our scheduled hours or send any tutor/advisor an email. However, this should not replace direct communication and conversations with your GSIs and instructors!

Study groups

The content of each study group is the same. Students' questions and the style of lecturing while be different, but if something important does arise, we'll post notes to our respective Google Drive folders. Feel free to attend whichever one fits your schedule!

Review sessions

We host exam reviews and construct exam-level problems for you to practice and engage with the material. Again, they are not meant to be a replacement for GSI-led review sessions. Links will be posted the night of the review sessions.


Schedule updates will be posted below if a tutor cannot make their session.
