Be a Math Tutor
Math Learning Center (MLC) tutors provide individual and small group tutoring to students in first and second year math courses. They also assist students in improving academic achievement by meeting with them on a regular basis to clarify mathematical learning problems and develop mathematical habits of mind. Other assistance might include: reviewing class material, discussing the text, predicting test questions, or working on solutions to problems. In general, the tutor will provide services that supplement classroom teaching.
