Frequently Asked Questions about our Economics Program.
Our emphasis is on equipping you with economic analysis tools and quantitative reasoning skills, so we engage in the problem-solving process with you instead of just providing answer keys.
In preparation for all our services, our tutors attend lectures, visit office hours, and meet on a weekly basis to work on class assignments together. For exam reviews, they also consult the teaching faculty and/or Head GSI to hammer out the content they believe best represent the focus of the class.
We place top priority on our tutors’ training. All tutors are required to attend weekly training seminars where we read and discuss research papers on peer pedagogy and education at large. Our goal is to equip every tutor with the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively serve their peers.
Our tutors attend lectures, visit office hours and consult teaching professors and/or Head GSIs for content preparation. We maintain an open line of communication with the department in order to best represent the courses we serve.
The SLC Economics Program currently offers 2 formats of service: drop-in tutoring and exam review sessions. Drop-in tutoring starts week 3 of the semester until the last week of instruction and exam review sessions take place during exam seasons.
At this point, our services include only drop-in tutoring and exam reviews.
At this point, we only offer services for the Fall and Spring semesters.
Drop-in tutoring takes place in the Cesar Chavez Atrium between the hours of 10AM and 2PM from Monday to Thursday. Drop by at a time that works for you to work with a peer tutor on economic materials of your choice like problem sets, lecture exercises, or concept review. Check out the course-specific schedule here.
Exam Review Session
Review materials are typically a mix of concept review and practice problems, with slight variations depending on the course. Materials are designed based on class materials and in consultation with faculty and/or head GSIs.
RSVP links for upcoming review sessions are posted on our live exam review schedule, announcements, and emailed to our mailing list no earlier than a week before each session. Seats fill up quickly, so reserve a spot as soon as you can! We recommend following our Facebook page to receive real-time notifications.
If you think your email is not on our mailing list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, you can’t. We close RSVP forms when review rooms reach maximum capacity. In accordance with the university fire codes, we are unable to accommodate new signups.
It depends. If the RSVP form is still open, and the session you want to switch to is still listed, please email us at email@example.com to change your RSVP. If not, that means the review rooms are at capacity and we won’t be able to switch you.
