There are many ways to get help with your courses across campus. Below are some resources for help in your chemistry courses. Note: these listings are kept as up to date as possible, but are still subject to change.
LEARNING RESOURCE CENTER (LRC) – 170 CE
Autumn & Spring Semester Hours: 8:00AM-5:00PM Monday-Friday
Summer Semester Hours: 12:00PM-3:00PM Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Teaching assistants (TAs) spend time each week in the Learning Resource Center (LRC) to provide contact time with their students. They can answer specific questions about their course as well as general questions about any general chemistry course. A schedule is posted in the LRC that lists the time each TA is available, as well as their course assignment, and is also available here. Stop by when convenient, you do not need to make an appointment. Teaching assistants wear a name tag indicating the course for which they are responsible, and there are designated tables for each general chemistry course. Computers that have instructional programs for the General Chemistry classes are available on a first come, first served basis. These programs involve only single-concept problems that must be understood in order to deal with the more difficult multi-concept questions on examinations. The LRC has limited space and is not designed to be a library or study hall, but a place where students can come for individual help and instruction.
Organic Chemistry TAs hold office hours according to the Autumn 2016 schedule available here.
Residence Hall Tutoring
Certified peer tutors are provided in math, physics, chemistry and more in several residence halls. The tutors are upper-class students who have demonstrated aptitude and success in math and science. There’s no need to schedule an appointment; just drop-in with your questions and your class materials. If you are struggling with a specific subject, they can access a list of coursework that their peers have completed and where they are working. More information, including tutoring hours, is available here.
The Chemistry & Biochemistry Undergraduate Office maintains a list of individuals who have indicated their interest in tutoring students privately. All arrangements, including payment, are handled independently by student and the tutor. Please fill out the form below to request a copy of this list be sent to your email address.
