The SLC offers Drop-in Tutoring and most likely study groups for students taking Physics 8A and 8B this spring.

Open the appropriate links below to find out more about each of these services. 

Current SLC Announcements for Physics 8A & 8B Students:

  • Update (Feb 20):
    SLC Science Study Group times and locations have been posted below.
    All groups currently have room for additional students.  Just attend the next group meeting and sign in on the attendance sheet.

  • Update (Feb 15):
    SLC Physics Drop-in Science Tutoring hours for this semester are Mon 10-4; Tues 2-4; Wed 10-4: Th 10-4; Fri 10-1.

SLC Study Groups - Description

Study Groups meet 2 hours a day, twice each week. In groups, a study group leader coaches the group by reviewing course material, answering questions, working examples to illustrate course concepts, providing worksheets for students to work on together, and helping students develop effective study strategies.

Use the next link below to sign up for study groups.

How to Join:

  • If you want to join a study group you were not placed or switch to a different study group, just attend any study group below that is not marked as Full.  Be sure to sign the attendance sheet when you attend and you should be added to the study group. As long as the group does not exceed the capacity of the room, you will be allowed to join.
  • If a group becomes full, then students will be required to attend the study group at least once a week to aviod being dropped from the group.

Drop-in Tutoring for Physics

SLC Physics Drop-in Tutoring Hours:

These are the weekly hours of Physics Drop-in tutoring:
Mon 10-4;
Tues 2-4;
Wed 10-:
Th 10-4;
Fri 10-1.

See this week's actual schedule with actual tutor hours here.

Location: Science Drop-in Tutoring Area on the 2nd floor of the Chávez Student Center.

The SLC provides Drop-in tutoring for all students in Physics 8A and 8B. Students can come in and talk to a tutor on a first-come, first served basis. The tutors work with students individually or sometimes in small groups, and can answer questions about lectures, course texts, homework problems, sample exams and labs.


How to Sign Up:

No prior signing-up is required.  Just come to the Science Drop-in Tutoring Area on 2nd floor Chávez during an open hour for your class.  Be sure to sign-in at the Drop-in computer when you arrive and then go have a seat at the Physics tutoring tables.

SLC Physics Study Parties

A Physics Study Party is basically a way for students to get together for a couple hours and work on SLC-selected problems together with SLC Physics tutors to help guide them.  We typically hold Physics Study Parties the weekend before a Physics exam. 

At a Physics Study Party, we'll typically have these:

  • A bunch of exam style problems posted around the building for you to work on and ask questions about;

  • A conceptual question zone so that you can make sure that you are understanding the concepts underlying the physics problems.

  • 6-10 tutors stationed at different areas so that you can do what will help you the most.

  • A Drop-in tutoring/study zone where you can study with other students and ask our tutors about any questions you have.

How to Sign Up

No prior signing up to attend a Physics Study Party is needed and any student may attend.  The schedule of each Physics Study Party will be posted here and also typically through an email and on our Facebook page.
