Tutoring Program

ISC Tutoring Services for Fall 2017

Request a Tutor

The ISC works in collaboration with Academics First Tutoring Program to pair students with tutors. The tutoring program provides support for 100 and 200 level courses in the areas of math and science. Generally, we can pair students with a tutor in 100 an 200 level courses in Business, Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology, Criminology, Economics, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, and Statistics. The ISC will provide an hour of tutoring per week (up to 13 weeks) for currently enrolled First Nations, Metis, and Inuit students. 

Please note that tutoring assistance is for course content only. If you require assistance with writing (essays, formatting, structure), please click here to book a consultation with the SFU Library's Student Learning Commons (SLC). For writing assistance, you may also use the WriteAway program. Learn more about WriteAway by clicking here
