The Math & Stats Help Centre is a free service for students that is staffed by Mathematics and Statistics faculty and upper level students. It is open to students taking any TRU course that involves mathematics or statistics, but is most useful for UPrep and first year level courses. TRU OL students are also welcome! Students can work alone or together with other students in a relaxed, informal environment, with help readily available. For best results, students should bring their class notes, textbook and prior attempts with them to the Centre.
The Help Centre, located in room 304 of the Brown Family House of Learning, is open during the Fall and Winter semesters Monday through Friday from 9:30 AM to 3:30, including final exam periods. It is closed during the summer.
This term (Winter 2014) we will also be open Mondays 5:30 - 8:30 pm, Tuesdays 5:30 - 8:30 pm, Wednesdays 6:30 - 8:30 pm and Saturdays mornings 10:00 am - 12:00 pm.
Note: Hours of availability are subject to change based on usage. We recommend that you verify the times regularly.
To accommodate TRU Open Learning students, our tutors will provide answers to math questions via Skype, email, or telephone. Open Learning students contact the tutor at firstname.lastname@example.org, 250-852-7674 for more information.
If you need a lot of individual attention and wish to hire a private tutor, the Mathematics Department maintains a Tutor List of students and graduates who provide tutoring. Rates and scheduling should be arranged directly with the tutors and are independent of the services of the Math Help Centre.
