About Mathematics Tutorial Laboratory

The Mathematics Tutorial Laboratory is a place for students to get assistance studying for their math classes. Its primary function is to provide students with the opportunity to receive one-on-one help from tutors ready and able to answer questions; the Math Tutorial Lab gets over 10,000 student visits each semester.

From January 25 through January 29, the Math Tutorial Lab will be physically closed, but will offer drop-in tutoring hours via Zoom. We will re-open to students on Monday, February 1. Students can join tutoring by clicking the link on the Math Lab's website (

What to Expect:

When you come into the Mathematics Tutorial Lab, you will be sign in at the Front Desk, find a seat, and raise your hand when you want help.  Tutors in the lab are graduate teaching assistants and undergraduate math majors. The tutors will not give answers to homework – instead, they will help you learn the techniques that will enable you to do your homework.

How to Prepare:

Bring your notes for the course and any other materials that you think will be helpful for you to have. Make sure you are attending class and coming in with specific questions or topics. If possible, visit the lab more than 48 hours before your test and come in on a regular basis.
