GSG Employment - Fall 2018

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Guided Study Group leader! We do not currently have any openings for GSG leaders in MATH. Please check back in future semesters!

Click here for the full GSG session schedule.  Also, please consult your faculty and TAs during office hours.


*GSG sessions have ended for the 2017-2018 school year. We look forward to seeing you back on campus in August 2018!*

Tutorial assistance for the courses below can be obtained by participating in Guided Study Groups (GSG). GSG sessions are free and are lead two to three times a week by an undergraduate peer leader, who has previously met success in the course.  GSG sessions are held during the fall and spring semesters.  For assistance during summer sessions, please refer to our "TUTORING" tab for information and hours.
