The Math Center offers one-on-one and group instruction by peer tutors. We assist students with the development of the mathematical understanding necessary to succeed in their undergraduate courses.
All Math Center tutors are Fisher undergraduate students, most of whom are math majors. The staff also includes MSTI, science, business, and English majors.
We are a drop-in facility. This means that we do not schedule appointments. If you would like assistance, just stop by the Math Center and ask for a tutor who specializes in your course. If one is not available, we will help you find a time when you can receive the assistance you need.
Tutors can assist you with math skills and concepts that are related to non-math courses such as CHEM101 or ECON221. You can also come to the Math Center to work on the basic computational and algebraic skills that are necessary to succeed in your present or future courses. In addition, we help students prepare for math entrance and certification exams.
Prior to coming to the Math Center, students should review relevant course material such as the class notes, textbook, and syllabus. Make an attempt to complete any assignments or practice exercises beforehand. Tutors will not do your work for you, but they will answer your questions and help you work through problems.
In the Math Center, you will find textbooks for all math courses, tutorial handbooks for many areas of mathematics, basic skills practice books and flashcards, and handouts on math study skills. Computers and printers are also available for student use day, evening, or weekends.
If you enjoy helping others and have a love and aptitude for mathematics then you are a great candidate. Please see the Math Center coordinator for more details.
