Having trouble with your PHY or AST courses? Several campus and student organized resources are available offering tutoring assistance for both lower and upper division physics courses:

Drop-in tutoring sessions and math/science workshops at the Academic Success Center

Included among the many services offered at the Academic Success Center.

ASC Drop-In Tutoring

ASC Math and Science Workshops

Free tutoring sessions in the Physics Study Room

Organized and managed by the Physics Club of UC Davis, free tutoring assistance for most lower division PHY courses can be found in the Physics Study Room (Physics Bldg. room 388).

A schedule of the current tutoring sessions can be found HERE

Paid tutoring services

Offered primarily by our graduate students. Private, hourly tutoring services are available on a pay-per-hour basis offering assistance with physics courses in addition to other STEM topics.

The H-Bar
A Physics Discussion Space and Snack Bar

H-Bar Homework Help Sessions

The physics department is continuing an activity called the "H(elp)-Bar" which will serve as a physics discussion space. The H-Bar will be a safe, non-judgmental and non-competitive space for physics students to receive help with their coursework from their peers and graduate student volunteers.

Physics is a very collaborative field, and H-Bar is a great place to get to know other students in your courses and solve problems together. Beyond physics course help, H-Bar is a good place to ask about undergraduate research, graduate school, or other physics-related topics. All students in physics courses or interested in physics are welcome!

H-Bar Zoom Meeting Information
There will be upper division course TAs present according to the below schedule, and there will be breakout rooms dedicated to questions related to the course they TA. The main room will be used for general discussion that does not pertain to a specific course, such as how to find research, apply to REU programs, graduate student life, or whatever physics-related topic comes up. Students can also use the platform to work on their homework or projects together even if you do not specifically need help from the TA. Additional breakout rooms can be added to accommodate this or other discussions that pop up. 

Questions can be directed to the H-Bar TA, Morgan Walker, at mawwalker@ucdavis.edu

For the Zoom link, check your UC Davis email for a message about H-Bar, your course Canvas sites, or email Morgan Walker at mawwalker@ucdavis.edu
