The Economics Department offers a number of senior economics students teaching assistant positions. Tutorials significantly benefit both our senior and first-year students. They provide a unique opportunity for senior students to get experience in the classroom. This increases self-confidence, improves communication skills, develops interpersonal problem solving skills, and consolidates their knowledge of economics.

The system also benefits large numbers of first year students who receive extra hours of instruction with our best senior economics students in small interactive class sessions. Moreover, because a senior student leads the sessions they offer another type of environment for students to ask questions and to play a more active role in their own learning experience.
