For the latest information and updates about McMaster's response to COVID-19 (coronavirus) please visit the McMaster COVID-19 site.

The DeGroote Human Resources Association (DHRA) and DeGroote Accounting Association (DAA) provide drop-in support for first-year students struggling with Commerce 1AA3 and 1BA3.

  • The DHRA will hold drop-in support for Commerce 1BA3 on Tuesdays from 4:30 – 6:00 pm in DSB A102.
    • Note: the drop-in time is changed to 12:30 – 2:00 pm on Tuesday, October 22.
  • The DAA will hold drop-in support for Commerce 1AA3 on Thursdays from 3 – 5 pm in DSB A102.
    • Note: there will be no drop-in on Thursday, October 24 and the drop-in time is changed to 5:00 – 6:30 pm on November 27.

You can also consider affordable tutors through the Undergrad Peer Tutoring network, overseen by the Student Success Centre. There are a number of former Commerce 1AA3 and 1BA3 students offering tutoring services. All McMaster undergrad tutors have received a minimum of A- in the course.

Tutors through the Undergrad Peer Tutoring network are available to help their peers and charge a reasonable rate of $18 per hour. For our students, the first five sessions per semester are subsidized and only cost $8 an hour. Students and tutors connect on the TutorOcean platform and mutually agree to meet in person, or through the 24/7 virtual classroom to review course content and make new understandings with course materials. For more information, visit the TutorOcean platform.

These support services are in addition to regularly scheduled Instructor and TA office hours. Pick the support service that works best for you!
