Group Learning Support: Economics
Tutoring Services also provides group study opportunities geared toward the economics courses for which we see the highest demand. Most often these are scheduled during peak periods for tutoring demand, such as the exam period at the semester. Keep an eye on the calendar below for upcoming group opportunities.
One-hour Weekly Learning Roundtables offer students the opportunity work with each other and a tutor to improve their own understanding of course material, and they recur regularly giving students a chance to space out their studying and deepen learning and retention.
