Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Book an appointment on the Student Life Portal 

  • Individual 45-minute appointments with an Academic Specialists may be booked up to 2 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

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:
