HelpME Center

The HelpME Center is a collective of undergraduate students in Mechanical Engineering who serve as Teaching Fellows and provide academic assistance for courses. Mechanical Engineering students can access the HelpME Center through Canvas. Please note, given the large size of our department, you may be sharing that tutoring session with 1 or more students.

Guidelines for virtual office hour participation:

  • Dress appropriately and be respectful to the teaching fellows.
  • Make sure your background does not contain any offensive material. Please make use of the zoom blur feature or virtual backgrounds if needed.
  • Try to maintain privacy by using headphones or by participating in a quiet room. Minimize distractions for yourself and others.
  • Allow 3 business days for the teaching fellow to answer your question, please contact if it’s been longer than 3 business days and you haven’t heard back. 
  • If you are uncomfortable with the person or the conversation during a session, inform them you are ending the session then end the call. Inform the Undergraduate Office ( immediately of these situations.
