Tutoring & Study Centres

Students have access to several quiet places to study where they can find computers, reference materials and friendly peer tutors. Tutors help them with homework, prepare for tests, as well as pass on study tips and strategies. Working with a tutor is a great way to use  breaks, and it is FREE.

Work smarter, not harder!
