Mini-Sessions

Mini-Sessions are small group tutoring sessions led by upper term faculty assistants or tutors. Sessions vary by term and can be started by student request.

Guidelines for a Mini-Session
Education often looks like competition. Actually, it's more like cooperation. Studying with others allows an exchange of ideas. You learn something and they learn something - everyone wins!

  • Test each other by asking questions.
  • Practice teaching each other.
  • Compare notes.
  • Brainstorm for 5-10 minutes at the beginning of each mini-session.
  • Set an agenda for each session.
  • Get to know each other personally. We all need emotional support as well as intellectual support!
