Who are the tutors?

CAPS students work with "staff tutors."  These are senior students from the University of Waterloo or Toronto Metropolitan University who are completing co-op work placements at Sheridan.  Recent math tutors have studied Statistics, Accounting and Financial Management and Mathematical Finance. Staff tutoring is free and offers ½ hour or 1 hour appointments as well as shorter drop-in sessions.
