ECE Tutoring Program

Virtual Study Tables

This is an opportunity to join other students in your classes to get help with topics or homework (not to be confused as tutoring), or just stop in for some social interaction when you’re tired of sitting quietly along in your room. For more one-on-one help, please utilize the ECE Tutor Program by going onto BoilerConnect and scheduling a time.  

Current virtual study table dates, times, and courses can be found on our events page.
