Math Learning Center

Tutoring Services

If you are struggling with math, come to the Math Learning Center (MLC). We're here to help. The MLC is located in CH 313.

The Math Learning Center (MLC) employs students in part-time hourly positions to provide brief tutorial math assistance for students on a drop-in basis. A schedule of tutors, along with the level of math and the days/times available is posted at the MLC. The services are free of charge.

Tips for Using the MLC:

  • Take charge of your own learning - and form your own "study groups" for your math classes - and then meet in the MLC
  • Get to know the student peer tutors who are available for your specific classes.
  • Practice your math skills and applications.
  • Keep in mind that "doing homework" is very different than "studying" and you need to plan time and DO BOTH to be successful.
  • Remember that there is a learning curve, which begins very slowly when you first become acquainted with new concepts, skills, tools and applications. Take time and plan ahead and schedule enough study and MLC time to meet your needs.
