The Math Learning Center offers tutoring services on a walk-in basis—no appointment is necessary. The service starts on Monday of the second week of classes and ends on Friday of the last week of classes. The MLC tutoring sessions will not be held during Final Exam weeks, Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, and Spring Break, as well as on Labor day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
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.
