  • Math (MA 131, MA 141, MA 231, MA 241)
  • Chemistry (CH 101, 102, 201, 220)
  • Physics (PY 211)

Drop-in tutoring is held in Biltmore 2026 and begins 1/18/2023.
Math and Physics: Wednesdays, 4:30-6:30 PM

Student Expectations

Students should come to tutorial sessions prepared having attended class and taken notes, with all necessary books and materials, and having attempted homework and assignments.

The tutor is a successful student, but not a teacher or an expert. Though s/he is a good resource, the tutor will not do the student’s work and is not responsible for the student’s final course grade.
