Tutors are available in the math area to assist drop-in students. There are several tutors working each hour to help students understand math concepts and stay on task with their homework. Tutors can also help students with strategies for preparing for exams, note taking and time management.
Study groups are a good way for students to work together to learn and understand difficult material. The tutor leading the session will review concepts, answer questions and provide study skills tips. Students may request a study group once they have enrolled in Tut 050N. At least 4 student requests are needed to form a group. Once the study group is formed, other students from the same class are welcome to join.
Students enrolled in Math 008, Math 010, Math 030, or Math 045 are eligible for a reoccurring weekly appointment with a tutor. Students enrolled in the following programs are also eligible for reoccurring weekly appointments: Veterans, DSPS, EOPS, Equity, Guardian Scholars, Puente, Umoja and PRESS. Students in these programs must ask their counselor to submit a referral form to the Student Success Center. Once received, the student will be contacted by a staff member to set up an appointment. The tutor will review class concepts, answer homework questions and provide study strategies like test preparation.
There are computers in the math area for students working with a tutor who use an online program for homework, like MyMathLab or ALEKS. (Not available during COVID 19 closure of center)
