What you can expect:
We can assist with ECON 2001, 2002, 4001, and 4002 by:
  • Answering questions 
  • Reviewing concepts that may have been confusing in class 
  • Letting you practice your own work 
  • Providing you with strategies that will help you work independently
  • We will make an effort to assist with other ECON courses, but each tutor’s abilities will vary.
What you should not expect:
  • We cannot work your problems for you.
  • We cannot serve as a substitute for your lecture or recitation.
  • We cannot guarantee one-on-one tutoring for your entire visit; tutors will assist all students in the room and answer questions as needed.
  • We cannot guarantee same-day assistance, such as an exam day or the day an assignment is due; come in before that time for maximum attention.
How to make the best of your time:
  • You need to be prepared to direct the session by having questions and topics in mind prior to arriving.
  • You should bring your course materials, including the class text as well as any notes.
  • You should review your work prior to arriving so you know where you need the most help.
