Economics Help Room

The Economics Help Room  is located in 102 Sulzberger Annex. The hours (all in the evening) are:

Sundays 7 to 9pm
Mondays 7 to 9pm
Tuesdays 7 to 9pm
Wednesdays 7 to 9 pm.

Tutoring will be available for Intro to Economic Reasoning, Math Methods, Intermediate Macroeconomics, Intermediate Microeconomics, Statistics, and Econometrics. The tutors are your peers, and the EHR is a judgment-free zone. There is no such thing as a stupid question in the EHR!

If you use the EHR, please keep the following in mind:

First and foremost, at the start of the semester, there will be an adjustment period, so not everything will go smoothly at first. We appreciate your patience as we “learn on the job.”  You should feel free, at any time, to send any comments via email to Professor Harrison (sharriso@barnard.edu) , or to stop by her office (244 LeFrak Center, Barnard Hall) to chat about your experiences.  All comments will be kept confidential.

Second, when asking for help with homework, please also bring your textbook and notes with you. The tutors might not have had the same professor as you do, and therefore might not have used the same textbook. Therefore, it will be helpful for them to see how you were taught the material.

Third, there will be sign-in sheets. Please sign in! It is important that we keep this record of use.

You can find updates about the EHR throughout the semester at:

or just go to the Economics department home page, and find a link to this page.
