Chemistry Camp | Tutoring Services

The goal of Chemistry Camp is to help participants to prepare for and be successful in Basic Chemistry (CHE1073) and General Chemistry (CHE 1103).  Historically, 92% of participants who completed the program scored either an A or B in the respective course.

Chemistry Camp - Course Prep Workshop

Each Chemistry Camp session is three days, generally occurring on Wednesday-Friday. During these sessions, participants have the opportunity to review Chemistry material with a UTSA professor and experienced upperclassman tutors.
