The Elsie MacGill Learning Centre (EMLC) is focused on furthering students understanding and comprehension in their engineering studies, and provides students with the academic support they need to achieve their learning goals.

Whether you have a quick question, want to review a solution, or just need a fresh explanation of content that was covered in class; our Engineering scholars are here to help with your ECOR and first-year math and science courses.

Summer 2024 Tutoring Services

The EMLC will be offering tutoring sessions in-person (in 5030MC) and online (via TutorOcean). The service is free to use for all first-year engineering students. Use the link below to log-on to your TutorOcean account to book a session with an EMLC Scholar.

At the beginning of each term, all students registered in a first-year engineering course will be sent an email to their Carleton email address inviting them to join our tutoring platform. The invitation email is sent from the account If you did not receive an invitation email, or have any issues accessing our services please contact the team at for assistance.
