We are staffed by the Department of Mathematical Sciences Instructors. These Instructors consist of both Mathematical Sciences graduate students as well as non-tenure track faculty. We also have undergraduate tutors. These undergraduate tutors typically have taken mathematics courses at least through M172. We have between 4-8 tutors on staff at all times and the combined experience typically covers most course levels at any given time.
The MLC is a drop-in tutoring center supported by the student fees from the courses we tutor. We scan student IDs to ensure students are enrolled in one of the courses listed above.
We are sorry, but since the MLC is supported by student fees from courses we tutor, we cannot offer assistance for other courses.
The undergraduate student at the sign in desk will ask for your Cat card. They will swipe the card and confirm you are enrolled in a course. We encourage you to sit at the table with your course number assigned to it as you'll likely find other students taking that course sitting there. Of course, however, sit where is most comfortable for you. Once you arrive, get out your assignment, course notes, and pencil. Raise your hand when you have a question and a tutor will come over to assist you.
