In-Class Tutors offer one-on-one tutoring assistance to students during the class without disrupting the faculty member or other students. For example, Tutors may provide guidance during labs or lectures, to ensure students are following the pace of the class, reviewing previously taught material, or sharing study techniques and campus resources. Tutors are not to teach any new material or support with instruction or grading. For more information, please Contact Us and we will gladly meet with you to discuss our support.

Note Taking Services

Note taking services is a disability-related accommodation facilitated by the Peer Assisted Learning Support (PALS) office for students registered with Accessible Learning Services (ALS).  PALS’ note taking service requires students to audio record their classes and upload those audio recordings to a third-party supplier website to receive notes.  Students may use a cell phone, tablet, digital recorder, laptop or other device to record a class. Students are advised that the purpose of these recordings is for personal study only. To help Humber and the University of Guelph-Humber Faculty, PALS provides answers to the most common questions in our Note Taking FAQ section.
