Engineering Tutoring

We provide embedded tutors for ENGR  225, 322, 325 and 326. 

Embedded tutors work closely with their faculty and support students in the classroom. Additionally, they arrange tutoring hours with students to receive support outside of the classroom. 

Additionally, we provide a drop-in Engineering Lab on Sunday afternoons as an open space to work with Engineering students in AMH 17. 

You can use the space as a place to study or you can come prepared with a specific topic you want to work on.

Tutoring for Specific Courses (Embedded Tutoring)

What is an Embedded Tutor?

An embedded tutor is a tutor who is dedicated to serving the students in a particular class. You will find them in class with you, helping your instructor lead activities. Embedded tutors also offer drop-in tutoring hours. Embedded Tutors drop in hours will be included on the Science and General Lab Tutoring Schedule

How do I find the Embedded Tutor for my class?
If your class has an embedded tutor, they will be in class with you. By the end of the first week of class, they should post a 1-minute introductory video on Canvas and you can message them directly in Canvas.
