Need help with a tricky tutorial problem or exam prep?

Our mathematics and physics learning centres are valuable resources for first-year students.

You can ask our friendly tutors about parts of a course you don't understand, about tutorial problems, or for help with reviewing work before an exam.

Tutorials are voluntary and informal, and you can attend them in addition to your regular tutorials.

Physics First-Year Learning Centre​

The Physics First-Year Learning Centre comprises 5 in-person tutorial sessions per week.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday, between 12.00pm and 1.00pm.

Upon request, Zoom sessions may be accommodated.

Head to the Ed PLC Discussion Board to join the discussion board, then ask a question or request a Zoom meeting.

Questions can be posted at any time on the discussion board (which can be anonymous). However, being proactive with your learning is always the best approach, since responses may not be instant. It is much better to drop into a PLC session to ensure the timeliness of questions being answered.
