Learning Circles

Learning Circles are the new way to get the help you need in tough quantitative courses.

In learning circles, students meet in small groups with a peer academic consultant who has expertise in the course. The peer academic consultant will answer questions, explain concepts and facilitate learning between classmates. Students can join a learning circle at any point in the semester. Through learning circles, student can get the quantitative help they need while also building community with their peers.
