Services Provided & Expectations

We can assist with ECON 2001, 2002, 4001, and 4002 by:

  • Answering questions and reviewing concepts that may have been confusing in class.
  • Letting you practice your 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.

We cannot:

  • Do your work for you or serve as a substitute for your lecture/recitation.
  • Guarantee one-on-one tutoring for your entire visit; tutors will assist all students in the room and answer questions as needed.
  • 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:

  • Be prepared by having questions and topics in mind before arriving.
  • Have your course materials with you, including the class text and any notes.
  • Review your work before arriving so you know where you need the most help.

Which Tutor Should I Work With?

All tutors will try to assist you, but our staff has a range of experience. Try to work with a tutor that has the most experience with the course you are seeking assistance with. If the tutor has limited experience with that course, they will ask other tutors that may have more familiarity with the subject.

COVID-19 Considerations

  • The ELC will adhere to all University policies regarding COVID-19:
    • Wearing a mask is optional at this time.
    • Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes will be available, and we encourage you to use them.
      • All surfaces in the ELC will be disinfected regularly.
