SECS CORE Tutoring and Resource Center

Struggling to be successful in an SECS CORE course? Tutoring (group and 1-on-1) available at our new Tutoring and Resource Center located in 114 DHE.

Tutoring available for the following courses:
  • EGR 141
  • EGR 240
  • EGR 250
  • EGR 260
  • EGR 280
Potential tutors: If you have been successful in a CORE course recently, like to help people and make some money doing it, please apply to be a tutor for any of the above courses that you have a proven track record in. Research shows that students that can actually teach others retain information at far higher rates than those who do not, so this experience has the benefit of information retention as well.
