### Tutorial

The tutorals are focused on the hard parts of the assignments and lectures.

Our tutors scan the weekly assignments to determine if their students have put in effort.

### Walk-in hours

Students can walk in at our open office hours for specific problems.

We have a facebook group where students can post questions.

### Remediation

We invite all students with a fail on the first interim assesment and organise a remediation session to address the issues.
