Tutoring

Portrait of woman in classroom

The Academic Success Centre provides free group virtual tutoring to all TRSM students and students taking management courses. All tutoring sessions will take place on Zoom, will last 50 minutes in length, and will start at 10 minutes past the hour. Students begin by filling in the Peer Tutoring Request Form. After filling in this form, students pre-register for tutoring on the online booking system, opens in new window.

Tutoring sessions are led by upper-year Academic Peer Helpers (APHs), students who are hired and trained by the Academic Success Centre. These sessions are meant for students to further their understanding of course material and not for the purpose of learning new material. Please come prepared by reading the chapter(s) you would like help with, doing some practice questions, and bring an example or two of the kind of questions you would like to cover. The APH’s role is to support students in increasing their confidence with course material, as well as increasing students’ practice of skills to be able to work through problems on their own. APHs typically have achieved an A- or higher in the course they tutor. They are also often referred to tutoring roles by faculty members.

All tutoring will take place on the Zoom virtual platform. Students are advised to review the PDF fileASC Virtual Tutoring Center Step-by-Step Instructions for Students, opens in new window to familiarize themselves with the processes from registering for a virtual tutoring session to providing feedback after a virtual tutoring session.
