What does "free tutoring" mean?

  • Free tutoring is available at Trafalgar, HMC and Davis campuses in the Tutoring Centres

  • Students can book up to 2 hours of tutoring per week.  For example, students may

    • book two 1-hour sessions, or

    • book four 30 minute sessions

  • Is 30 minutes too much? Try our walk-in hours (selected subjects)

    • Ideal for single questions or short exercises

    • Walk-in hours vary by campus, daytime and some early evening walk-in hours available

    • More information on walk-in hours

    • No appointment required

Who are the tutors?

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

How do I sign up for tutoring?

Our tutoring portal is called Tutor Ocean.  Visit Tutor Ocean to book your session: Use your Sheridan network ID/Password to log into TutorOcean.

Useful tips
