About the Math Tutorial Lab

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 5,000 student visits each semester.

Private Tutoring

The Mathematics Department maintains a list of students available for private tutoring. You may pick up a copy of this list in the Math Tutorial Lab or in the Mathematics Department Office (14 MacLean Hall). If you are interested in being added to this list, tutor applications are available in 14 MLH from Amy Simonson.

What to Expect

When you come into the Mathematics Tutorial Lab, you will sign in at the Front Desk, find a seat in the appropriate area for your course, and raise your hand when you need 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 (textbook, example problems, etc.) 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.
