Frequently Asked Questions

When are math tutors available? 

 Check our most up-to-date availability. 

Do I need to make an appointment to see a math tutor? 

No appointment is necessary. Math tutoring is done on a first-come-first-served basis. 

Do you offer anything besides tutoring? 

YES. In addition to our academic support services, we have computers, text books, calculators and solution manuals that you can borrow while you are working in the Lab. An extensive collection of worksheets are also available, free of charge. 

What should I bring with me to the Math Lab? 

When you come to the Math Lab you should bring your text book and any notes from your class. Tutors can assist you with any text book problems or examples presented by your instructor during class that you are having difficulty with. Come ready with specific questions. Remember: The tutor's role is to provide assistance NOT to teach you an entire topic. Tutoring complements classroom instruction; it does not replace it. 

How busy does it get? 

It can get quite busy during the day at the Math Lab. To make the best use of your time as well as our tutors, you will be given a help card to signify tutors that you need help. Simply place the card in the upright position and a tutor will be over as soon as possible.
