Student Support

Students taking chemistry courses have several opportunties to get help with chemistry. You can, of course, also meet with your professors during their office hours or make an appointment to meet with them.

Peer-Led Team Learning

Small teams of students in the introductory chemistry courses (CH115, CH125, and CH126) meet to learn to work together to figure out chemistry problems. Each team is led by a student who took the course previously. These teams are formed at the beginning of each semester and then meet each week.  

Peer Academic Coaching

Our popular chemistry courses have peer coaches available on weeknights whenever you have questions and want answers. You do not need to make an appointment. Come with your own questions about homework, material discussed in lecture, or labs. Here is the schedule for drop-in tutoring for all courses.

Individual Peer Tutoring 

The Office of Student Academic Services can arrange a tutor to meet with you individually.
