What are some things I need to know before I ask for help? 

You want to be ready with a question you need answered or an idea you want to know more about.  Also, make sure you have your class open on Moodle in case we need to see something in it.   

We'll spend 15-20 minutes helping you with your question or idea.  You can see us as many times as you like! 

We won’t tell you if your work is right or fix it for you, but we will show you how you can do that yourself. 

Sometimes we’re busy!  We’ll still help you, though.  While you wait, keep working on what you're doing in class.  You could also answer these questions to find out what else we could help you learn, then visit the Academic Skills for Success or Test-Taking Skills pages to learn more. 


Where can I ask for help? 

Use Google Chrome to see us at norquest.ca/tutor.  When you’re on the page, press to enter our virtual Blackboard waiting room. Ask for a Math or Science tutor-coach for help with things like MedCalc and Physics. Ask for a English, Writing, or Humanities tutor-coach for help with things like ESL and Social Studies.

When can I ask for help? 

We’re here to help Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 6:00pm, both on-campus and online.


How can I get in touch with you?

Once you’re there, you can come into our Blackboard room by pressing 
You will have to sign into Moodle first if you are not already logged in.
If you move to the bottom of the page, you’ll see on the left-hand side a live chat box. You can get in touch with us that way, too!
