Math Resource Center:
The Math Resource Center offers both drop-in and appointment tutoring sessions both in-person or via Zoom to all math and math related subjects. Appointments are 1-hour slots. On the other hand, for drop-ins, you can meet with a tutor for 15-minute slots or ask up to 5 questions, whichever happens first. Then, you are encouraged to work on your own and come back when you have more questions. This process continues until you understand the material or have completed your assignment. To do a drop-in, please stop by the Tutoring Front Desk to check-in.

You can access Tutor.com through your course on D2L. It is located along the right side at the bottom. It will say “Tutor.com Online Learning.”
Before your session, you should identify what you need assistance with and know where the instructions for the assignment are located (on D2L or a paper copy). Additionally, view and bring supplemental materials (lecture notes, PowerPoint slides, etc.) related to the assignment and bring any necessary tools, such as a calculator for math related assignments.
Our tutoring staff consists of student tutors, faculty tutors, and full-time staff tutors.
If you are interested in becoming a tutor, you need to fulfill the following requirements:
- Complete your current academic year FAFSA

The Tutoring area has several tables and computers that students are free to use no matter if they are being tutored or not.
