Our purpose is to offer free math tutoring to any student enrolled in a math course at UPB. Each student may have one hour of tutoring per subject per week. Students are encouraged to speak to the Director if they feel more time may benefit them. 

Our team consists of both faculty consultants and peer tutors. Peer tutors must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and have received at least a B+ in the courses they tutor.

Our mission is to facilitate student success in math. Math competency is one of the University’s requirements for graduation and an essential part of development of critical thinking skills. We help students not only grasp the concepts of math, but to also help to develop specific math study skills necessary to succeed in math courses. 

We understand that continued student success is about more than just grades. We strive to encourage critical thinking, resource referencing, time management, pattern recognition, and study skills to create confident and self-sufficient learners. 

Our services include: 

  • Homework 
  • Practice problems 
  • Exam prep 
  • Exam corrections 
  • Software utilization 
  • Calculator usage 
  • Take-home quiz or exam help, with instructor permission* 
    •  * Students are encouraged to bring take-home quizzes and exams to the center. Even without instructor permission to directly assist, we are able to pull similar material from the textbook and clarify essential concepts. 

Location and hours: 

251 Hanley Library 
Monday-Thursday 8am-4pm 
Friday 8am-2pm 
Some evening hours may be available.
 
We hope to see you there!
