Tutoring

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,

  1. answer questions
  2. review material for quizzes and tests
  3. provide test preparation and test taking tips
  4. establish short and long term study goals
  5. 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 Spring 2 014 private tutoring link near the bottom of the page.

How can I provide an evaluation of the math or statistics tutor who helped me?
