University of Saskatchewan - Tutoring

At the University of Saskatchewan, subject-specific tutor listings are distributed across student societies, colleges, and departments, with the USSU having the most comprehensive tutor list on campus.

The management of these lists and the credentials required for joining the tutor listing is maintained by each individual unit. Please note that most of the tutor directories do not require that tutors have any formal credentials or minimal qualifications for being included on the listing.

We are working to gather an extensive collection of links to tutoring lists at the U of S and welcome your help. Please contact ulc@usask.ca if you know of a department tutor list in any subject.

Pharmacy and Nutrition

The college puts on a 'Critical Skills Tutorial Session' about three weeks before the Critical Skills essay. They go over some past essay questions. It lasts about 1.5-2 hours. If you pay attention, you can get a good idea of what the college is looking for in the essay. If you have applied, the college will send you an email informing you of when and where this happens. ULC Writing Help tutors can give you an idea of how you are doing with your practice answers.
