Maths related to an undergraduate course:
All our staff are skilled at helping students learn and use maths on their own. We can help you find the key concepts you need to know in order to solve a problem, interpret what your course materials say, and identify any gaps in your assumed knowledge. We are particularly experienced in the concepts in first-year level courses, but can still help in the above ways for courses we are unfamiliar with. Finally, we can also provide useful handouts, offer general advice on study skills, or give you fun activities to try if you are bored.
So the short answer is: "Try us out!"
Statistics relating to a research project:
We are happy to discuss your statistics, but we prefer you email us on email@example.com to make an appointment first, since this is often a complex discussion. Also, it is important to note that we are not professional statisticians, so it can happen that we may not know the correct statistical procedures you need to use, and even if we do we can only give you general advice.
If you are a 3rd Year Med student wanting to talk about your research proposal, then we have a special appointment system for MBBS III students.
We have all of the following resources to help you learn:
We are not directly involved with your courses, so please bring along anything you can which will help us understand what you are being taught (eg. lecture notes, printed handouts, textbooks).
As long as you need to. You may work on your own or with friends, or make some new friends.
