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.
Tutoring begins Monday, September 16th at 1:00pm!

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.
Check the LRC tutoring schedule for days and times. For Fall 2013, tutoring is available for all required math, chemistry and physics classes and in:
Engin 110, 111, 113
- Che: 320, 330
- CEE: 240, 241, 241A, 250, 260, 310, 320, 331, 357, 411
- ECE: CS 121, ECE 211, 313, 353, 361
- MIE: 210, 211, 230, 273, 302, 313, 340, 353, 413, 444, 497E
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.
For the Fall 2013, SI is available for:
- CEE 241/MIE 211 (Strength of Materials)
- CEE 250/MIE 230 (Thermo)
- ECE 313 (Signals)
- MIE 210 (Statics)
