Tutoring

Portrait of woman in classroom

The Academic Success Centre provides free group virtual tutoring to all TRSM students and students taking management courses. Students pre-register for tutoring on Eventbrite, external link, 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. 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 Centre Step-by-Step Instructions for Students to familiarize themselves with the processes from registering for a virtual tutoring session to providing feedback after a virtual tutoring session.
