The Math Center offers on-campus walk-in tutoring.

On-campus tutoring

Free tutoring is provided to all students registered for a Math class at City College.

Bring your student photo ID card (CSID) and a tutorial referral code to the Math Center to receive walk-in tutoring during hours of operation.

Your CSID is required at all times to use the Math Center.  


Trained tutors and professors are available throughout the day. The tutors are there to help you, but it is up to you to contact them, if you are having difficulty. Many times you will find that one or two words from a tutor can help clear up difficulties that could take you up to hours on your own. If you feel that you need help, just go to L-208 and a tutor will be there to help you.

Different tutors are available at different times, so when you find a tutor you feel you can work with effectively, you should plan your lab hours around their hours. Tutors and professors are available for tutoring, not teaching. Tutors are there to help you, if you have worked the problems and still have a question. Tutors are not there to provide hours of instruction. Because of the large number of students, tutors may only be able to spend 5 or 10 minutes at a time with you. If you still feel you need more time for tutoring, please see a supervisor for suggestions.
