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 and providing you with strategies to help you work independently.
  • We will try 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 as they can.
  • 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, including the class text and any notes.
  • Review your work beforehand to know where you need the most help.
