Math Lab Tutor Role

The role of the tutors is not to give students the answers, but to teach students skills they can apply to their current assignment and future proficiency.

Tutors are Students Too

Even if they aren't experts in your subject, they will look at your problem and try to help you figure it out. We can't guarantee we can help with every problem, but we will try!

Other Tutoring Options

  • One-on-one or Small Group Tutoring is available through the General Tutoring Lab.
  • Private Tutors -- In the Math Dept. Office, there is a list of people available as tutors. This is like a "bulletin board" type of list. That is, these are not people sponsored or recommended by the Math Dept.
  • Office Hours -- If you have made a serious effort and still need help, visit your professor during office hours.
  • Videos – Many texts have videos on reserve in the library.
  • Textbook Websites – Many texts have "companion websites." Often these have review pages, tutorials, and practice tests.
  • Other Websites – There are lots of great math tutorial websites such as www.hippocampus.org or www.khanacademy.org
  • Workshops
