Tutoring Resources

Hey guys, the Spring semester is here! That means a new semester of fun, interesting, and exciting things as well as new challenges. For those of you who are taking lower division science classes (Chem 1A, 3A, 3B/ Physics 8A, 8B/ Bio 1A/1B etc) it can seem very intimidating since those are considered "weeder" classes for upper division. But it doesn't have to be that way! There are many resources on campus for tutoring that is just waiting for you to come to them for help. If you lived in the Units you are probably familiar with the Academic Student Services Center under the dorms. Learn more about them here: http://academicservices.berkeley.edu/. They are a great resource for science and math tutoring.

There is also the Student Learning Center at the Caesar Chavez building where they offer science, math, and writing tutoring http://slc.berkeley.edu/general/index.htm. There are drop-in science tutoring at the SLC upstairs everyday from 9-4 with Friday closing earlier at 12. Math and writing tutoring is held downstairs in the atrium. The SLC also holds study groups for Chem 1A, 3A, 3B/ Biology 1A, 1B / and weekly recaps for NST 10 and problem sessions for Physics 8A/B. Check the website above for details about time, location, and how you can join a group. The SLC is a very friendly atmosphere and great learning environment. Lastly, you may also request private tutoring at the SLC if you are willing to pay for one. Requests for private tutoring by visiting Richard Gibson at 141 Chavez. As a Biology 1A tutor myself, I am always waiting for students to come for tutoring consistently rather than all at once a few days before a midterm. See you there!
