While our facility and services are open to all City College math students, first priority access is given to students taking one of the Math Center Math 15ABC courses.

Trained tutors and professors are available throughout the day. 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.

Because of the large number of students, tutors may only be able to spend 5 or 10 minutes with you. If you still feel like you need more time for tutoring, please see a supervisor for suggestions.

We offer tutoring in two formats:

  1. On-the-fly support: On demand service for any student who has a quick question like help on some homework problems. Just come into the main computer lab, raise your hand and a tutor will come by to help.
  2. One-on-one support: These sessions with a tutor address math support in greater depth like review before an exam or reviewing a returned test to discuss problems missed. Sessions are available depending on tutor availability for that day. Speak to the front desk staff to request a one-on-one session.
