Instructor/TA help:

  • Talk with your teaching assistants and professors and ask them to clarify what you do not understand from lectures and assignments.
  • Ask instructors about their policy regarding work that is submitted late. Sometimes, you can earn a passing grade by submitting work late even if there is a late penalty.
  • Speak with your Instructor early and often so they get to know you. They may be more willing to work with you if an issue arises.

Tutoring options:

  • Sign up for tutoring in the Calculus Tutoring Lab if you are in Math 10A or Math 20A.
  • Drop in for assistance at Help Room if you are in CHEM 6 series. For other chemistry courses, see your TA.
  • Explore drop-in tutoring services for multiple subjects at OASIS.
  • Engineering student? Check here to find a tutor in your field of study.
  • Sign up for tutoring in the Physics Tutorial Center if you are in a Physics class.
