In-Person

For the Spring 2021 semester, we are offering in-person group tutoring sessions for select courses. Each group session can have a max number of five attendees, and attendees must sign up prior to the session. Sessions will last 45 minutes and surfaces will be sanitizing in between sessions. Masks covering the nose and mouth must be worn the entire session. To sign up for a study session, follow the link below, choose your class, and select a time.  

Courses offered include:  Chemistry 106, Math 090, Math 112, Math 113, BIOL 330, BIOL 13
