Do Learning Consultants tutor students? Is there a Learning Consultant specific to my course?

Learning Consultants work across disciplines on a range of academic skills and strategies. Occasionally a student will meet with a consultant with a particular area of expertise in order to work with the student to identify specific strategies for problem solving in math or studying for a biology course, but consultants do not tutor for specific courses.  We do have peer tutors available for certain courses
