All online appointments will be conducted via WebEx

When you book an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email and a reminder email with a link to participate. Before your appointment, make sure that you have a microphone and speakers or headphones. To reduce potential audio feedback, the use of headphones is recommended. If you have never used WebEx before, you will need to add an extension to your web browser or install the desktop app.

Please note: our system does not send you a personal WebEx meeting link to add to your calendar.  You must remember to initiate the appointment by clicking on a link that we provide in our confirmation email.

WebEx Tips Prior to Your Appointment

We've gathered a number of tips that we learned from our experience of offering appointments since May 2020.  We highly recommend you view this page before your appointment.  It's possible that your computer might require additional steps and we have an instructional video on where to save a document before your appointment and how to share it.

Math & Stats Help

Online Meeting: Book a 25 or 55-minute appointment to talk one-to-one with a Math and Stats Help tutor via WebEx. It has been our experience that these sessions work better when the student and tutor both use the WebEx desktop app.

Math & Stats Help tutors can help you to

  • clear up misunderstandings
  • find your mistakes
  • understand challenging concepts
  • think through problems
  • understand course concepts (confidentially)
  • learn problem-solving strategies.

While tutors cannot do your homework for you, they can point you in the right direction and give you tips for learning challenging material.

We recommend that you read the tutor bios before booking an appointment to view the courses and topics they can help with. If you don't see what you're looking for, just make an appointment with either tutor, and they will try to help or refer you to someone who can. You can also email mathhelpcentre@usask.ca.

We look forward to working with you!
