Who are Learning Peers?
Learning Peers are students just like you who learned how to master their courses and volunteer to help to other students with their courses. They are the best kind of study-buddies, offering friendly support, a wealth of subject-specific knowledge and study strategy ideas. It's more than tutoring; it's like a personal trainer for your academic life.
Special opportunity for MATH 1200 and MATH 1185 students!
Warm up for MATH 1185 and 1200 with a three hour, interactive workshop led by MRU students who have recently excelled in the course. In this session, you will work with classmates on activities to review fundamental pre-calculus content and practice your math skills.
- Offering 1: Tuesday, September 10, 3 - 6 pm
- Offering 2: Thursday, September 12, 4 - 7 pm
- Offering 3: Saturday, September 14, 12 - 3 pm
Seats are limited for this FREE workshop, so register early to avoid disappointment.
Looking for more help?
