Peer tutoring via Nimbus
The Office of Student Life (SVE), in collaboration with the ÉTS Student Association (AÉÉTS), offers a free peer tutoring service for many ÉTS courses (depending on availability and demand) that is accessible via the Nimbus application.
The mandate that tutors commit to is to provide guidance by answering your questions concerning the course material, reviewing certain concepts with you, going through exercises and directing you toward other resources, if necessary.
Please note that the tutor cannot be substituted for the instructor in any way or answer questions concerning evaluations. If the tutor’s approach to resolving a specific problem differs considerably from the approach employed by the instructor, it is your responsibility to consult the instructor.
