MATH AND SCIENCE TUTORING

Students enrolled in math, statistics, science, or any other courses involving mathematics are welcome to drop in for math tutoring whenever questions or difficulties arise.  Math tutors are available to help students with a number of tasks, including preparing for exams and quizzes, overcoming homework-related difficulties, understanding particular problems or concepts, using math textbooks effectively, elaborating on proofs, clarifying class notes, and providing tips on how to study mathematics more effectively.

WRITING TUTORING

The purpose of the writing tutoring program is to help students develop a more comprehensive understanding of the conventions of college-level prose. To facilitate this, tutors discuss writing assignments, listen and respond to students’ drafts, introduce students to various writing strategies, and help students understand the reader/writer relationship.

TUTORING FOR SPECIFIC COURSES

Tutoring for specific courses offers students the opportunity to discuss concepts presented in lectures or reading materials, learn problem-solving and critical thinking strategies, improve study skills, and develop learning strategies.
