Math Learning Center

Swain East 340

The Math Learning Center offers tutoring services on a walk-in basis—no appointment is necessary.

The MLC provides a group tutoring experience in order to provide quality math instruction. You are asked to work together with other students taking the same Math course. Tutors assist the groups and individual students with their questions by giving hints and guiding students towards the correct solution. Working in small groups with your peers is an effective way to learn. By combining this with a tutoring experience, the MLC encourages students to develop their group learning skills.

When you visit the MLC you will be asked to sign the visitor's book. Be sure to print your name and include your math course number, instructor's name, and the time of your visit. Some instructors use this information to determine extra credit. It also helps the MLC monitor and improve its services. 

This semester we are privileged to have a staff of nine very knowledgeable undergraduate students. There will usually be two tutors available to help students with their questions.
