Frequently Asked Questions

You are expected to bring your own questions regarding your lecture material, course homework, exams, or practice problems. We will first ask you to explain your approach to the problem before we start helping you. This helps us to see what type of mistakes you have made and which concept you are missing. Then, we will ask leading questions and hopefully guide you to a satisfactory answer.

  • We can explain/walk you through a hard concept that you have encountered in class. 
  • We can assist you to approach and solve a problem by giving helpful hints and resources.   
  • We make sure students understand the concept behind each problem and know how to apply them when encountering similar problems in the future. 

Questions. They can be problems that you have worked on but failed to obtain the correct answer or a hard concept from class that you do not understand.

If you have more questions, feel free to put yourself back on the queue before 10:45 p.m.!
