Academic Resources

Whether you had a rough start to the term and need some help catching up, or are looking to refine your studies, there are many ways to get extra academic support. Here are some of them:

Past Midterms, Exams and Syllabi

Academic Advisor

Each year and discipline is assigned to an Academic Advisor within that department. Academic Advisors are individuals who know about the Faculty’s various policies and resources, and can help with a broad range of issues from academic to personal to career-related. If you are having a personal academic related issue or question, your academic advisor is generally the first person you should go to.

Tutoring Services

If you need a bit of extra help with a particular course or concept, take a look at the Skule™ tutor database at There you can search by course code to see a variety of tutors with pricing information, tutor backgrounds and qualifications, and contact information so that you can find someone who is a good fit for you. If you are or know a graduate student interested in tutoring others, you can also apply to be a tutor.

The tutors listed on this site include the courses that they know well, so it’s easy to find very specific help. You can also often find past TAs and UofT Engineering students who know your course content very well. Protip: Some tutors offer group sessions, where multiple students can get help at the same time, and the cost per session is reduced. Ask tutors if they offer this option, and buddy up with a peer for extra help for less money!


P.A.S.S. (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) - These study sessions are hosted by ~2 upper year students per course. They are organized and facilitated by the First Year Office, and they are run throughout the term for many first year courses. You can find out more, including the schedule for upcoming sessions here. The students who run these sessions are usually current undergraduate students, so not only can they help with course material, but they can often provide tips and insight to help you perform better overall. Plus, many other first year students attend these sessions, so there is an opportunity to work with others and learn from your peers.
