TUTOR CENTRE (Tory 8-28)
The Tutor Centre will tentatively begin operation September 10, 2018 and close December 7, 2018. Hours
of operation, once set, will be posted on MindTap. The tutors are third and fourth-year honours economics
students. Ten tutors will be helping students this year. Although they are not all scheduled to be in the
Tutor Centre at the same time, there will be several tutors available at peak times.
You are encouraged to visit the Tutor Centre with content questions. The tutors will help you with
questions about class/text/assignment material. They will do their best to assist you in your learning; go
prepared. Take with you any work you have done so that the tutor can see what you have been doing and
help you to identify problem areas. Tutors will not provide answers to assignments before they are due.
They will help you to understand the concept.
You are also encouraged to visit the Tutor Centre if you would simply like to talk with an economics
student about the department and its course and program offerings. Tutors will be happy to provide you
with some incite. Program and course information can be picked up in the Tutor Centre as well as
information about our undergraduate advisors.
If you have any questions about, or encounter any problems with the Tutor Centre, please let me know
immediately. The Economics Department wants the Tutor Centre to serve students in the best way
possible. We need your help to ensure that this happens. Please fill out an evaluation form when you visit
the Tutor Centre. Tell us what you liked; tell us what can be improved.
Exams are scheduled for the following days:
Exams: The two midterm exams and the final exam will be written at the Learning Assessment
Centre (LAC) which is located at 3-106 Education North. It is the student’s responsibility to
book their exam time using the LAC website. If you fail to book an exam time and there is no
space in the LAC then you will receive zero marks on that exam.
Midterms consist of multiple-choice questions.
Students who are unable to write a midterm at the scheduled time due to personal reasons must
arrange with me, prior to the exam, to write the midterm at a different time.
