Tutoring - CASIM Assistance Centre

Located in the library (A-0217), Sciences, Computing and Mathematics Assistance Centre (CASIM) is a place where you can work, alone or in a group, and get help from a tutor to answer any questions you may have. Two heads are better than one!


  • Is free;
  • Does not require you to register;
  • Allows you to progress in your studies without getting stuck on an exercise;
  • Aims to be a friendly place to work;
  • Offers you assistance, whether it’s 5 minutes or 3 hours or more.

Please note that tutors may not substitute for the professor or lecturer by answering questions concerning assessments. When the tutor’s approach to solving a problem differs greatly from the teachers, it is your responsibility to consult your professor or lecturer.

Working with CASIM remotely

Connect to the Zoom session for your course at the appointed time. You will enter a waiting room, and the tutor will accept you when they are available. We recommend that you prepare your questions and begin to verify all of the details, ensuring that the sound on your computer is turned on. Please note that waiting time can vary considerably, depending on demand.

When the tutor accepts you into the Zoom session, you will be meeting with them one-on-one. Obviously, tutors cannot help you to complete any work or exercises for which marks are assigned.
