Physics Coaching/Tutoring 

Updated: 2024-02-03

The coaches will provide feedback and support to help you understand and complete coursework. However, they will not do your homework for you. You may find it particularly beneficial to go as a group to a “Hotspot” to work on coursework. The coaches will be there to answer questions when needed.
