Additional information about the role and responsibilities of NATS-AID volunteers Who are Class Reps? Students in all NATS courses are encouraged to elect class representatives early in the course. Such volunteers will act as liaisons between their fellow classmates and the instructor, NATS-AID Chair (Asma Fatehi), as well as the Director of Natural Science Division. Class reps are encouraged to ‘keep a pulse’ on the progress of the course and report to the Chair and the Director in a meeting per term each, and instructor. They also help facilitate the meeting of study groups, as well as relay information from NATS- AID to students. It is a great personal development experience, as well as resume- booster! If you are interested in volunteering for the Class Rep position(s), please speak to your instructor. Do you need help with your course? Do you want to achieve a higher grade? If yes, then the study group is for YOU! Get organized to prepare for exams/tests Get your questions answered Discuss ideas with other students Work on assignments together (where allowed) Receive study tips from NATSAID via email Be able to contact Natural Science tutors If you are interested in participating in, or facilitating, a study group please contact your Class Rep(s).

Study groups are prioritized by NATS-AID If your study group is unable to assist you, and we have a tutor on file for your course, we will contact the tutor for you once you email us.
