What is expected of me as an MTAC participant?

The MTAC model works best when each member is prepared to participate actively in every meeting, every week. As such, if you accept a place in an MTAC group, you are committing to attending one 90-minute coaching session every week during the fall semester. If you miss more than two MTAC meetings, you will be asked to leave the program, so that another student can take your place.

What should I expect from my MTAC group?

MTAC groups will be made up of CC, GS, and SEAS students working together to extrapolate key principles from lecture material and solve novel problems similar to those found on exams.

Question Tags: 

How is MTAC different from tutoring or recitation?

The goal of MTAC is to complement, not replace, recitation sections and tutoring. Tutoring and recitation sections help students achieve mastery of course content, while MTAC emphasizes problem solving skills. Participating in MTAC is not a substitute for active recitation participation.
