About the MLC
The main location of the Math Learning Center is room C126A in Wells Hall. There are also 5 satellite locations in various neighborhood centers (Click here for more information
Get free help for any 1825, 100-level and 200-level math class. Limited assistance is available for 300-level classes.
Ask questions in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. With the help of experienced staff in the MLC, you will come to better understand the concepts covered in your math class.
Why You Should Come Soon: Surveys show that students do significantly better if they regularly keep up with their homework and seek help early. MLC tutors do not do homework for you. Instead they help you understand concepts and put you on the right track quickly to help you succeed when you are in class, on your own.
Tutors: The MLC is staffed primarily by teaching assistants who are currently teaching the courses in which they are providing assistance. The high quality of this staff is verified by their ratings from student evaluations of the classes they teach. Surveys of those who use the center show they rate our staff to be very friendly and very knowledgeable. The MLC maintains an average ratio of 3 or 4 to 1 (students to tutors) so that students get appropriate assistance. Of course, near exam and assignment times, it will be busier.
Effectiveness: Almost all students surveyed indicate that the MLC has helped increase their math grades by anywhere from .5 to 1.5 on the standard 4.0 scale.
Please note that upper-level courses, and special courses such as MTH 112, MTH 201, MTH 202, and MTH 299 have restricted tutoring hours available. (Click the Wells Hall
