Drop-in Peer Tutoring

This is a free service for current BCIT students.  Drop-in study sessions with peer tutors are scheduled six days per week from September to May. Tutors work with all students who drop-in, so sessions are sometimes done in groups. No appointments are required for drop-in tutoring - just check the current drop in schedule [PDF] to see when a tutor in your program is working.  Then bring your schoolwork and join them in the Learning Commons.  Watch for the red tutor t-shirts.  If a tutor can not make it to a scheduled session we do our best to replace them with a tutor from the same discipline. At Downtown campus we offer drop-in tutoring in Business and CST courses. Tutoring will resume January 20 - May 7, 2020.
