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

- 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.

- 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.
