Guiding All Students to Academic Success

It’s a fact. Students who consistently attend math study groups tend to show improvement in their math grades and achieve a better understanding of class material. The College and University provide a number of ways for students to get extra help not only in math, but also in physics, chemistry and other science and engineering classes.

Free study groups for Calculus I, Calculus II, Vector Calculus and Differential Equations follow the curriculum through the semester and provide homework assistance, tutoring and test preparation. Trained study group leaders will help you navigate each level of math, making you stronger academically and preparing you for upper-division engineering courses.

Tau Beta Pi (Engineering Honor Society)

Looking to get help in your courses this semester? Tau Beta Pi offers help desk sessions twice a week! Join in-person or virtually, via zoom.

It's a great opportunity for students to get help from high achieving upperclassmen engineering students. In addition to technical tutoring, we're now offering technical writing assistance, specifically for non-native English speakers, though it is open to everyone. Need help in a certain subject? Look for TBP members that list your desired topic in their description! Can’t find the subject you are looking for? Try to find a session with a member in your major!

The service will be Mondays from 3 to 5 p.m. and Thursdays from 5 to 7 p.m. in ENGR 213 and on zoom and sessions will run through the last week of classes. The available tutors, their majors, and the subjects they can help with can be found on our website under the help desk tab:
