Tutorial Services


Math Tutoring is offered on a first-come first-serve walk-in basis anytime the Math Center is open. Due to the number of students attending the Math Center, tutors are limited to the amount of time they can spend with each student. Remember, tutors are here to help students with a problem or two and to answer questions that a student may have about a particular problem. Tutors are available as a supplement to the other learning resources in the Math Center; they are not available to teach each student the entire course one-on-one.

All Math Center tutorial students will be registered in the Math 44 (tutorial services) class to use the Math Center resources.


Math Center

One of the key resources available to you in the Math Center are workshops.
