  • create an inclusive community for students taking CS111 and CS112 courses.
  • build a peer network that fosters encouragement and support for the learning and academic persistence of all students regardless of identities.
  • assist Instructors and Learning Assistants in guiding the students to advance their knowledge and understanding of the course(s).

Office hours are held in a drop-in mode. The schedule is available on Canvas left pane under “Tutoring”.
