Math Lab Tutor Role

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.

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!
