Are you a first or second-year student? If so, AMS Tutoring is here to make sure you have the skills and support you need to tackle your work confidently. This doesn’t mean we’re going do your homework for you, but it does mean we can help you with coursework, assignments, exam reviews and more!

COVID-19 Update

In-person group tutoring at the NEST will be suspended until further notice. We will provide an update regarding our tutoring in residence program as we confirm details with our partners at SHHS. The AMS Tutoring team are currently working with our partners, Nimbus Tutoring, to explore continued support to students (for both private and group tutoring) online. We expect to have more information for students in the next couple of weeks as we work to adjust moving our tutoring program on to online platforms. We will update the undergraduate UBC student community on our AMS Services Facebook page soon.

How it works

There are two tutoring options open to all first and second-year students at UBC: Group Tutoring and Private Tutoring. All tutoring sessions are led by one of our verified AMS tutors.

AMS tutors are brilliant academics, focused on helping you achieve the grades you want on everything from coursework to exam reviews. Keep reading to find out more about Group and Private Tutoring, and figure out which one works for you!

Group Tutoring

During the school year, we hold free, drop-in group tutoring sessions every week from Monday to Thursday at various locations around campus. No sign-up is required, just drop in!

We also offer Private Tutoring for individuals and groups through the Nimbus app. Choose from our list of AMS approved tutors and set up a free consultation to see if they’re able to help you. Private tutoring does not operate on a regular schedule, as you will communicate with your tutor to find a time that works for both of you.

To book a private tutoring session for yourself or a group download the Nimbus App for iOS and Android.

Please submit your request as soon as possible before your exams as there is a high volume of students and a limited number of tutors!
