Economics

Econ tutors are prepared to explain concepts of economic analysis and to demonstrate how to solve problems.  They will generally not assist with mathematics.  

Priority courses are the following:

  • 19800 Introduction to Microeconomics
  • 19900 Introduction to Macroeconomics
  • 20000-20100-20200-20300 Elements of Economic Analysis I, II, III, IV

 

General Chemistry

Most tutors are former TAs in the Comprehensive General Chemistry sequence.

  • 12100-12200-12300 Honors General Chemistry I, II, III

 

Mathematics

Our tutors focus on the Math 150s Calculus sequence and Math 195 and 196.  If time permits, they may help with more advanced courses as well.

Under instructions from the Math Department, our tutors do NOT provide assistance with the Math 130s, Math 160s, or Math 159.  If you need help with the Math 130s, you should see your Junior Tutor.  Likewise, if you need help with Math 159, Math 160s Honors Calculus, or the 200 Analysis sequence, the Math Department strongly urges you to seek help from you instructor.
