Fall 2013 - Math Tutor Availability
Math tutoring can supplement regular class attendance by offering students a peer perspective of their math topics. Penn State Learning offers over fifty talented and caring tutors to lead our math learning community. You may meet them by dropping in as outlined under “Subject Sessions” below. Please have mathematical questions handy and ready for review.
How can math tutoring help me?
Worried about succeeding in college-level math classes or want to master the subject, there is a place for you in our math learning community. If you want an “A”, you’re not alone. Our math tutors can,
- answer questions
- review material for quizzes and tests
- provide test preparation and test taking tips
- establish short and long term study goals
- review exams from the previous semesters
Our math tutors have taken many of the math courses, and they can help you with your homework assignments and with using graphics calculators. We also have copies of old exams and review sheets for future exams on reserve for your use. *Must have a valid student I. D. to check out materials on reserve.
How can I meet with a math tutor?
Math tutors are available on a drop-in basis which means all you need to do is show up during the sessions listed below and a tutor will be waiting to assist you individually or in a small group. Math tutors do not provide tutoring for classes beyond Math 251. For help with these courses, visit the Math Department’s undergraduate Courses page and select the Fall 2013 private tutoring link near the bottom of the page.

You are entitled to 3 hours of individual tutoring per week for this course. If you are matched with an individual tutor, you can set your own meeting times with him or her. You can meet with your tutor at any one of our locations. Occasionally, small groups are set up with a single tutor due to the demand.
The tutors role is to help you understand the concepts so that you can do the work yourself. They are not there to tell you the answers, correct your homework, or proof read your work. Also, visit with your professor and TA. These are the people who know the concepts and material the most and who can help you the best. Please remember, your tutor is a peer tutor. This means that they have the same demanding schedule as you. Contacting your tutor the night before an exam or an assignment is due, may not allow the tutor enough time to meet with you. Meet with your tutor on a regular basis for the most success in your tutoring experience.
