About Math Tutoring

We offer weekly, 30-minute math tutoring sessions throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These sessions are by appointment only; students will work either one-on-one or in pairs with a graduate student math tutor. Students must attend sessions every week, or they will be removed from the schedule. We cover most of the math classes taken by first-year students, including: 0, 5, 12, 21, 22, 23, 51, 52, 75, 76, 81, 205, and sometimes 231. We also tutor for the statistical portion of BSTA 001 (not the programming components). All tutoring sessions will be handled through our WCOnline service.  To sign up for math tutoring, students can go to WCOnline to register and claim their weekly time spot. 

We recommend that students sign up early; most spots are taken within the first week or so of the semester. Those who sign-up are expected to come to their appointment every week. If students miss more than 3 appointments, they risk being removed from the schedule to make room for other students who will use the spot more effectively.

Please note that your first appointment will fall on the date you selected. Staff will add the appointments for the remainder of the semester, which will fall on the following dates. Make sure not to miss your first appointment for the date you originally select.

Math tutoring can meet over Zoom or on the WCOnline client. The links to both types of sessions can be found on WCOnline in your appointment form. If there is a Zoom link, you should follow that. If there is no Zoom link, click on the WCOnline session link.
