Types of Tutors

The QRS is staffed by two kinds of drop-in peer tutors:

  1. General tutors who can assist you with a wide array of mathematical and quantitative topics and skills
  2. Course-specific tutors who, in addition to being able to help you with general topics and skills, are attached to specific courses and course sections and sit in on them alongside you
