What to expect during your tutoring session:

The purpose of tutoring is to teach students how to become better active and independent learners. The goal is to improve your understanding of the course material, help you focus on the course content that is most important, and to answer specific questions you have about any processes/concepts. As a student in the Math Lab, you will be expected to:

  • Check in with the Office Assistant at the front desk.
  • Be courteous to those around you.
  • Turn cell phones to silent.

Math Lab tutors can:

  • Help you understand concepts learned in class.
  • Answer specific questions.
  • Help you get started on a problem.
  • Check that you are approaching a problem correctly.
  • Provide additional examples and practice problems.
  • Encourage you through the process as you tackle your homework.

*Please note: Math Lab tutors will not work on homework or assignment problems for you, check assignment answers, assist with take-home quizzes or essays, or repeat class lectures.

Tips for getting the most out of your session:

  • Come with specific questions or topics.
  • Come in more than 48 hours before your test. Exam weeks are more busy than usual, so plan accordingly.
  • Come in on a regular basis. You will make better progress!
  • Attend class. Remember, the Math Lab serves as a supplemental learning resource, not the main one.
