The best way to use the service is to be prepared prior to asking for assistance, bring your homework, assignments, and syllabus. To begin, have a seat at one of the tables and begin working on your assignments and math problems and ask questions as needed. Due to the high volume of students needing assistance, your questions will be answered in the order they are presented to the tutor. Our policy, depending on demand, is to limit up to three questions at a time. However students can keep coming back and ask questions until all of questions have been answered.

Also, there are computers in the MRC for students to access online resources, D2L, and homework assignments.
