There will be in-person and virtual tutorials on Mondays and Wednesday from 2:55-3:40pm.  Please take advantage of this time to get personalized assistance or answer any lingering questions that may not have been answered during class. Students are expected to be productive during tutorials. Those who stay unproductive or distract others from being productive will be asked to leave. Note: It is best to come early to tutorials! 

Let's have a great year!
