There are many tutoring services that are available for all engineering students. Resources include Help Centers in some departments, Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction offered by the Learning Resource Center and group study and tutoring offered by the Diversity Programs Office. No application is needed for any of these tutoring resources and they are free.
Learning Resource Center
W.E.B. DuBois Library
Sunday – Thursday
1:00 PM to 10:00 PM
The Learning Resource Center (LRC) provides peer tutoring and supplemental instruction (SI). Peer tutors have gone through training to help assist you with homework, assignments, and example problems from class. Peer tutoring at the LRC is done on a drop-in basis, is one-on-one, and is free. All LRC tutoring is located on the 10th floor of the Library. For the spring 2015 semester, tutoring is available for most Chemistry, Physics, and Math courses and for many Engineering, Biology and Computer Science courses.
Check the LRC tutoring schedule for days, times and courses that are tutored.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is informal, peer facilitated review sessions for a particular course. During SI sessions, students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools and predict test items. The SI leader is a student who has successfully completed the course. The student SI leader also sits in on course lectures for the current semester. Courses in Engineering with Supplemental Instruction for Fall 2016 are:
ENGIN 110, Sunday 5:30 - 6:45 pm and Tuesday 7:00 - 8:15 pm, both in Elab 306
ENGIN 112, Tuesday 7:00 - 8:15 pm and Thursday 8:30 - 9:45 pm, both in Elab 304
MIE 210, Sunday 7:00 - 8:15 pm and Tuesday 8:30 - 9:45 pm, both in Elab 304
ECE 221, Sunday 7:00 - 8:15 pm Elab 306 and Wednesday 7:00 - 8:15 pm Elab 304
