How Our Tutors Help

Our tutors include both professional tutors and student tutors recommended by faculty. They can:

  • Help you begin assignments and projects
  • Offer advice on how to approach problems
  • Encourage you to develop problem-solving techniques

Our tutors do not:

  • Solve assigned problems
  • Check completed problems for errors
  • Sit with you as you complete an entire assignment
  • Act as personal tutors

Tutors typically help many students during a given time slot. We also offer individual half-hour appointments for all 100-level math courses and MAT099.
