Math Center

Peer and faculty math tutors work in the Math Center to assist all members of the University community with their math courses and math-related assignments for other courses.

The Math Center sponsors the Tutor in the Classroom program as part of its tutoring services. As part of this program, every section of Math, generally through Differential Equations, is assigned a team of tutors.  The tutors in this program attend class, take notes, run review sessions before tests, and work as tutors in the Math Center. These services are provided at no additional cost to the student.

Peer Tutoring Schedules

All Math Center peer tutors participate in the Tutor in the Classroom program. The tutors work together as teams to support the math courses at RWU. The members of the tutoring team attend class lectures, take notes and are thus prepared to act as the primary tutoring resources for the course. 

The tutors work in the Math Center during a fixed weekly schedule and are available for one-on-one and small group tutoring during those hours. In addition, the tutoring team will lead test review sessions. These sessions are usually scheduled a few days prior to an in-class test, in the evening. The topics covered in the review session are based on materials provided to the tutors by the instructor of the course.

While the tutor who is specifically assigned to a student's course is the student's best tutoring resource, many of the peer tutors have had previous Tutor in the Classroom assignments. If your schedule does not match to the work schedule of members of your tutoring team, please come into the Math Center and we will recommend another tutor who is knowledgeable about the material in your course.

Faculty Tutoring Schedules

Faculty tutoring is available, by appointment only, in the Math Center, located in the Tutoring Center, 2nd floor of the Library. Students may schedule appointments with faculty tutors by visiting the log-in desk immediately inside the door of the Tutoring Center. Please see faculty tutoring schedule below.

Test Review Sessions

As part of the Tutor in the Classroom Program, peer tutors lead test review sessions prior to in-class tests. During these sessions, the tutors will go over review materials provided by the instructor and/or answer general questions about the topics on the test.

The date, time and location of the review sessions are announced in class. This information is also posted on the office door of the Math Tutoring Coordinator, Rick Fullerton, in the Tutoring Center located on the second floor of the University Library.
