Tutoring at the Math Center is a drop-in service staffed by students. You may come in to have
specific questions answered, to do your homework. Either way, tutors are
scheduled to help if you have difficulty
with a problem. Come early in the semester and return often.
Our tutors are mostly math majors who intend to become teachers. To become a tutor, they must
have at least a 3.0 GPA in their math courses, be recommended by a faculty member, and interview
with the Director of the Math Center. Tutors are able to help students with 100 level math courses,
as well as some math found in non-math courses.
The role of the tutor is to:
- Provide a comfortable and patient atmosphere.
- Answer questions you have about the concepts taught during class.
- Help you read and understand your textbook and notes.
- Help you prepare for quizzes and exams in advance.
To make your tutoring session productive:
- Try your homework or study for your quiz or test before coming to the Center.
- Highlight any questions you have.
- Bring your class notes, handouts, and textbook with you.
- Ask the tutor specific questions.
- Reduce stress, do not wait until the last minute to come in for help.
