Tutoring Resources

Extraordinary Students

We know that physics is tough...but so are you! We want our students to succeed, so there are several resources to get additional help outside of the classroom.

Most of the following resources are FREE to students, so use them!

Most of our first year introductory courses (2010, 2020, 2210/3210, 2220/3220) have tutoring labs located in JFB 209. Several days a week, a student can walk in to get help in the course they are taking. These labs are staffed by student TAs who give one on one help in course topics. 

Schedules vary by course, so check the current schedule posted on Canvas, your class page, or outside of JFB 209. 

The Learning Center  often offers free physics drop-in tutoring. Private tutoring services will be $5 per hour starting in the spring of 2020. To learn more, visit their website or contact them at (801) 581-5153.
