Computation Track Tutoring

Need extra support with your EECS coursework? Weinberg can help with that! We’re glad to be able to provide a free EECS tutor for CogSci Computation Track students (or students who are planning to declare the CogSci Computation Track). The Computation Track tutor is not an IA and won’t have access to the auto-grader, but can provide support with conceptual questions, study strategies, and more for classes such as EECS 183, 203, 280, and 281. 

In-person tutoring is available in 1469 Mason Hall on Mondays & Wednesdays from 6-8pm. 


Meet Maria Figueiredo!

Computation Track Tutor for 2023-2024

  • Students can ask Maria about - Navigating college as an international student, double majoring in Computer Science, and finding the best study spots on campus! I was previously a tutor for EECS183, EECS280.
  • Why CogSci - It was the perfect opportunity to explore the relationship between computers and the human mind and take interesting classes in various disciplines. The department is also super welcoming and the staff is always ready to help you! 
  • Academic Experiences - This is my second semester doing research in the Computational Neurolinguistics Lab under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Brennan, where I study the differences and similarities between how transformer neural networks and the human brain react to the same piece of linguistic input. & I currently work as a Tech Consultant for U-M Information & Technology Services.
  • Hopes after graduation - Either find an internship in Software Engineering or continue doing research in the field of AI and machine learning.
  • More about Maria - I am really into concerts, festivals, theater, musical theater, and live performances in general! I also love books, audiobooks, and graphic novels, and will absolutely never turn down a movie night :)

Meet Hillary Luan!

Computation Track Tutor for 2023-2024

  • Students can ask Hillary about - Navigating college as a student in cognitive science on the computation and cognition track and double majoring in Computer Science. I have experience being an IA for EECS 203 and I'm happy to help!
  • Why CogSci - I chose cognitive science because of its interdisciplinary nature with multiple subjects I had interest in, including psychology, computer science, and linguistics. I also enjoy the well-rounded courses cognitive science adds to my schedule.
  • Academic Experiences -  I am a member of Phi Sigma Rho, an engineering sorority.
  • Hopes after graduation - Either go to graduate school or go into the software development industry. 
  • More about Hillary - I enjoy performing flow arts as part of Photonix, a performance flow arts group specializing in glow sticks or other light-up props.
