Math and Stats Help tutors can help you with a variety of mathematical or statistical topics, but our focus is on first-year or introductory courses. We can help with courses that have mathematical or statistical content or concepts, including those that do not have "math" or "stats" in their title, such as COMM 104, GE 111, PLSC 214, etc. Students can get help from a tutor by appointment or by email. Our appointments are held using the University of Saskatchewan's webconferencing software, Webex.
Prior to May 2020, our service was primarily a drop-in service: students were welcome to drop in to work on homework and ask questions when needed. The drop-in service was available at the physical location of the Math and Stats Help Centre, room 144 in the Murray Library on the Saskatoon campus of the University of Saskatchewan. As the campus is currently operating remotely, in-person help is not available.

The University Bookstore stocks some books on refresher mathematics (e.g. "College Algebra," "Forgotten Trigonometry") in the U Sask bookstore. There are also review sheets in the mathematics textbook section of the bookstore. Interested students may want to look for books on refresher mathematics in the University Library. Some students have found borrowing high school textbooks from the Education Library helpful in reviewing math concepts.
Hire a Tutor provides a list of tutors who tutor for a fee. Tutors' qualifications have been checked by staff from the University Library. Each tutor must have an NSID, have taken the class within the past 5 years (some exceptions may apply), be endorsed by an instructor, and give Hire a Tutor administrative staff access to their transcripts. Each tutor sets their own pay rate.
