Our Mission

Students smiling for the camera in the Math Lab

The Center for Math & Statistics Support seeks to increase a student’s ability to understand and apply mathematical principles and knowledge, acquire better study skills, become more independent in learning, and excel in math classes. Since tutors are available to answer questions on concepts and course materials, The Center is a great place to work on math and statistics homework.

Tutors work with students to help students learn. This takes time and requires active participation from the student. Tutors will not simply give answers or do homework problems for the students – which do not facilitate learning -- instead, tutors coach students through their exercises.

Students are encouraged to work in groups and discuss homework exercises with fellow students. The Center seeks to maintain a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and reduce student anxiety about learning mathematics.

Tutoring Policies

1. We help you learn to problem-solve to improve your math skills.

We will not assist with take-home exams, but will gladly work with you to improve your skills.

2. We are fully online and appointment-based.

You are allowed to schedule up to two 30-minute sessions per day.

3. Please log in on time and cancel if needed.
