Drop-In Help Desks: Ready to Help When you Need Them

December 5, 2022

There are times you can benefit from meeting with a tutor. You may have specific questions or want something explained another way. You may want someone to observe you working through pinch points; offering solutions that are responsive to your needs.

At the Academic Success Centre, found in the  Notre Dame Campus and Exchange District Campus libraries and online, there are many ways you can access tutoring and writing supports.

Drop-In Help Desks are one of those ways.

There are two streams of Help Desks – Writing (general writing skills and nursing writing) and clustered around courses or programs. Trades Math, Business Math and Accounting and Engineering Math are all examples of these clusters.

How does Drop-in tutoring work? Easy! Visit the schedule at Help Desk Drop-In Tutoring and attend. Bring your questions, assignments or  course notes/materials; a staff tutor will be more than happy to help with your course !

In addition to helping you untangle a question, assist with the writing process and/or provide opportunity for review, Help Desks provide comfort, confidence and foster active learning – you may feel more comfortable asking questions in a Help Desk setting. Furthermore, you become actively engaged in your learning process – you get to identify and articulate what you want to review.  All this leads to academic improvement and an increased value to your college experience.

We look forward to seeing you at one or more of the following Help Desks:
