As part of their requirements, members of Tau Beta Pi offer their knowledge and expertise in lower division mathematics and engineering courses to help other students during tutoring sessions. Depending on when our members sign up, there may be an emphasis on a specific area of engineering on a certain day. All members have strong skills in math. The tutoring sessions are informal; no appointment is necessary. Just drop by and ask for help.
