The Academic Success Centre provides free group and individual virtual tutoring to all Ted Rogers School of Management (TRSM) students and students taking management courses. All tutoring sessions take place on Zoom, start at 10 minutes past the hour, and last 50 minutes in length. Pre-registration through our online booking system is required.

Tutoring sessions are led by upper-year Academic Peer Helpers (APHs), students who are hired and trained by the Academic Success Centre. APHs typically have achieved an A– or higher in the course they tutor.

The APH’s role is to support students in increasing their confidence with course material as well as increasing students’ practice of skills to work through problems on their own. Students are expected to come prepared with specific questions and content they’d like to discuss with the APHs, such as specific problem sets and concepts or skills like Excel and calculator use.

All tutoring takes 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 processes from registering for a virtual tutoring session to providing feedback after a virtual tutoring session. The key steps of this process are:

  1. Log in to the online booking system to complete the Peer Tutoring Request Form, which outlines the current policies and guidelines for the Tutoring Centre. This only needs to be filled in once each term.
  2. Register for a session online and complete the Tutoring Questionnaire for the specific tutoring session. After these steps are complete, students will receive a confirmation email on or before the day of the session, including information on joining the Zoom session.
  3. Prior to the tutoring session, navigate to the Ryerson Zoom domain ryerson.zoom.us, external link and sign into Zoom. Students must log in to Zoom using their Ryerson credentials in order to be admitted to the tutoring session. For support on using Zoom, visit the Ryerson Digital Media Projects: Zoom website.
