Feel free to check the ‘Events Calendar’ located in the upper-right hand corner to see when exam review sessions will be held for your course(s).  These review sessions are open to all students and depending on the course, may have a separate review for each section.

SI sessions are held at the same time every week. Students can drop in during scheduled SI sessions and are not required to sign up in advance. SI sessions are typically larger than tutoring sessions. SI Leaders attend regular lectures for the course and prepare agendas and activities for their sessions. SI Leader will also hold exam reviews. 

Tutoring is by-appointment only, and students must sign up in advance (no drop-ins). Tutoring sessions are small-group sessions (smaller than SI). Tutors have experience taking the course before, but they do not currently attend the lectures. 

Our sessions are held at the following locations: 

Bolton 120 for Math SI and tutoring 

Bolton 180 for Math drop-in tutoring 

Lubar N243 for all Business and Econ (+Math 208) SI and tutoring 

Library East Wing (E154, 159, 175, 177, 178, and 179) for all other subjects 

Tutors and SI Leaders will not work directly on homework problems during a session. However, tutors and SI Leaders will be able to review similar problems and examples that can help you complete your homework. Students should primarily expect a review of important course material, example, activities, and study strategies, as well as knowledgeable answers to their questions.
