Tutors and Academic Support

ISC Tutors specialize in different subject areas and are a great resource for students. Tutors can provide general tips and information or can work with you to explain complex subjects that you may be struggling with. Tutors are friendly, helpful and want to help you improve and succeed as a student! Tutor contact details will be posted on this page from September to April each year.


Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science


I did my undergrad in computer science and math. I’m now doing my PhD in neuroscience, using cool computational methods to understand how the brain works. In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors (hiking, camping, now getting into rock climbing), playing the piano and drawing. 

I can help with: You are very welcome to stop by if you need any help with math, stats, and computer science. Also feel free to send me an email (jxiang27@uwo.ca) in case you cannot make it in person.

Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry


Hi! I’m Haley, a recent MSc graduate from the department of Biochemistry. My research focused on a plasma protein called TAFI involved in the coagulation and fibrinolytic cascades. I earned my BMSc also at Western in Biochemistry and Cell Biology with a minor in Environmental Science. I have always loved science since I was a child and dreamed of continuing my education as much as possible. In my free time, I enjoy reading, fiber arts, and hiking. I have plenty of experience with the typical courses associated with an undergraduate degree in science and am excited to help you understand them too!
I can help with: If you’re struggling with your science courses, especially those related to biology, chemistry, biochemistry, physics, please stop by with your questions! Sometimes, a new perspective is all you need to enhance your understanding, and I would be more than happy to provide that. Alternatively, if you are feeling lost in a course and are not sure what to ask, please come by and I can try my best to help guide you in the right direction!

Schedule (in person)

Mondays - 4:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.

Tuesdays - 5:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.


Academic writing, formatting, editing, and research


I am a doctoral candidate in the History Department studying the British military’s censorship of soldiers’ letters during the First World War. Prior to my studies at Western I earned a BA from UofT in Medieval Studies followed by an MA in Early Medieval History from McMaster where I explored the narrative structure of Augustine’s Confessions. This was the basis for a paper I presented at the Oxford University conference on Patristics which was later published in the journal Studia Patristica. I remain interested in Augustine’s thought, particularly the Platonic influences in Augustine’s early writings. Outside of academia, I am a tinkerer – I like to work on cars and do home repairs. I am interested in technology and obsessed with sport; I have won every fantasy sport league I have joined! I spend most of my free time with my 9-year-old son who, like me, is obsessed with baseball.

I can help with: All aspects of academic writing including formatting, editing and research, both archival and online, and I am happy to provide feedback on written work. I can offer advice on how to navigate through undergraduate and graduate life, and am happy to assist with graduate school and scholarship applications, the production of CV’s, and the preparation of abstracts for conference presentations. Additionally, I am always down for a random chat so swing by and see me.

Schedule (in person)

Mondays - 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.


Mathematics, Statistics


Hello, my name is Mojgan, and I am a third-year Ph.D. student in Western’s Math Department. I finished my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Applied Math. I have three years of tutoring experience in the Math Department of Western University. As a Math tutor in the Indigenous Student Center, I am interested in helping students to solve mathematical or statistical problems and improve their grades and math level.

Please feel free to contact over email at mezadian@uwo.ca or drop by the Indigenous Student Centre!

Schedule (in person)

Mondays - 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M.

Thursdays - 11:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M.


Writing, citations, research, and formatting


I am a new master’s student at the Centre for the Study of Theory and Criticism. My research focuses on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, but I am also very interested in anarchist theory. Before coming to Western, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of Lethbridge. This is where I grew up, on the traditional and continuing lands of the Blackfoot people! In my leisure time I enjoy reading, hiking, and biking, but when I feel less energetic, I will throw on Top Chef (despite being a horrible cook). I am thrilled for the opportunity to be involved with the Indigenous Student Center!

I can help with: Writing, citations, research, and formatting, but feel free to ask me anything and I will try my best to respond in a supportive way! I can also try to answer any questions you may have about philosophy, political science, sociology, or anthropology. Come by and see me, I am very interested to know what you are studying!

Schedule (in person)

Wednesdays - 12:30 P.M. to 4:30 P.M.

Fridays - 12:30 P.M. to 4:30 P.M.

If you can’t make it in during these times, feel free to email me spaskusk@uwo.ca and I can help through email or arrange to help in person.
