Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering Support

The Student Learning Centre provides academic support in chemistry, physics, and engineering courses through workshops, drop-in study halls, peer assisted study sessions (PASS), and one-on-one appointments with an academic specialist or peer tutor

 In 2020, students who achieved an A in CHEM 1010 attended chemistry support five times or more. The highest grade achieved for those that did not attend chemistry support was a B.

Book an appointment on the Student Life Portal 

  • Individual 45-minute appointments with an Academic Specialist or Peer Tutor may be booked up to two weeks in advance.

  • Come prepared with specific questions about the content and concepts of concern. Students are encouraged to bring homework, rubrics for assignments, and other materials relevant to the content you are looking to review.

  • Individual support is available by appointment, both in-person and virtually via Google Meet. 

Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering Workshops

Chemistry, physics and engineering workshops provide an interactive way to review difficult concepts through collaborative learning. Science and engineering workshops follow the same pace as course lectures. Space is limited, so it is best to register online on the Student Life Portal

Appointment Booking Guidelines

Appointments should be made in advance, especially during peak times. Peak times are typically a few weeks prior and leading up to midterms and final exams. However, the Student Learning Centre offers drop-in study sessions through our study halls and writing room.

Please provide 24 hours’ notice to cancel an appointment. Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice:

  • Will be counted as a no-show.
  • After three no-shows, a student may be barred from accessing the service for the remainder of the semester.
  • Will result in one session taken off the semester total (12 appointments per calendar each semester).

An academic specialist can help students in a variety of topics in chemistry, physics and engineering. This includes, but is not limited to: 

  • Chemistry 1 and 2 (CHEM 1010, 1020)
  • Chemistry for Engineers (CHEM 1800)
  • Dynamics
  • Introduction to Energy Systems
  • Life Cycle Engineering
  • Physics for Science and Engineering (Physics 1010, 1020, 1030 and 1040)
  • Physics Portion for Essential Math for Games (INFR 1020, 1030)
  • Thermodynamics (MECE 2640, MECE 2320, MECE 3230 and NULC 2010)
  • Solar Energy
  • Thermal Environment Engineering
  • Upper-year Chemistry courses: Analytical Chemistry (CHEM 2030 and 2130), Organic Chemistry (CHEM 2020 and 2120)
  • Wind and Hydro Energy
