Free Science and Math Peer Tutoring

Science and Math Peering Tutoring is the first peer education program at SFU linked to specific academic subjects. The program is a collaboration between faculty in the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and the SFU Peer Education program. Volunteer peer tutors provide support for select science and math classes on a drop-in basis.
