Tips to Help Make Students Visit to the Math Learning Center Successful

  • Get acquainted with the math tutors.  Find one or more math tutors you work well with.
  • Consult the schedule online or posted in the center to find out when a particular staff member will be working.
  • Talk and work with other students in the center who have similar questions.
  • Visit the center consistently throughout the semester.
  • Don't wait until exam weeks to come in. There will be more opportunities for individual attention during non-exam weeks.
  • Check the center web page for special review sessions for your course.
  • Make sure you have reviewed your notes and tried the problem ahead of time. 
  • Have questions ready. Be proactive in asking questions.
  • The tutoring session is about building on your understanding and is not a place to get answers.
  • Do not expect the tutors to develop a lecture over the material. They are here to clarify misunderstandings on course material and to answer questions.

Tutoring Services

Tutoring Services provides free individual and small group academic support for a wide range of courses. For Course-Based Tutoring appointments, students must fill out the request form linked at, and they will be notified by our front desk staff on the status of their appointment.

Students who want to develop general strategies and skills for all of their courses can meet with a Peer Academic Coach. Peer Academic Coaching is an excellent way to get personalized solutions to the challenges of in-person and remote courses. Students can meet with a Peer Academic Coach by utilizing our free walk-in support or by scheduling their own appointment. Visit for walk-in hours, as well as directions for scheduling a Peer Academic Coaching appointment.

Supplemental Instruction is offered for free for select courses. This small group support is led by a student who has successfully passed the course, received training, and is in contact with the instructor. The Supplemental Instruction schedule is posted at SI Leaders also communicate the session schedule directly to the class.
