Tutoring

Engineering Tutoring is an engineering specific and easily accessible tutoring program provided by your EUS in conjunction with the Applied Science Student Development Office.

We will be holding review workshops for select first year courses at least twice per term: once for midterms, and once for finals. At our reviews sessions we will have tables set up for each subject, practice problems, and trained tutors to help you out whenever you get stuck. We will post the worksheets and solutions from our review sessions here after each session.

PREP 101

Founded in 1999, Prep101 has helped over 100,000 students get better marks on their tests and exams through our classroom prep sessions.Our service can be summarized in two words: customized prepCustomized means our classroom prep sessions led by expert instructors are adapted to each course at each university. We only cover the key concepts and problem-solving skills that students need to know to excel on the exam for their course – nothing more, nothing less. Prep means we sharpen problem-solving skills and teach students how to apply course concepts to exam questions. We start by analyzing past exams from each course. We discover what concepts are being covered, the types of questions being asked and how difficult they are. Then we develop step-by-step methods to solve these questions and pass them on to students at our prep session.

Prep sessions are problem-solving workshops – not review sessions – that help students improve problem-solving skills by working through lots of practice questions so they are prepared to tackle recurrent question types on exams. Visit us on our website to see a list of the prep courses we’re offering at UBC!
