Tutor students in the Math Lab at the Learning Commons.
Located in the Learning Commons, the goal of the Math Lab is to assist students at all levels to improve their math and reasoning skills. This is accomplished through one-on-one discussions of student work.
Student learning outcomes for tutoring focus on helping students to improve their understanding of math in the long term to build success as a foundation for developing increasingly higher level math skills.
The Math Lab promotes productive learning. Tutors individually dialogue with students about math concepts by answering questions as they arise, or by helping students locate additional resources. Tutors foster a climate in which students are encouraged to engage in the process of learning, in order to not only solve individual math problems, but to build confidence in the ability to improve problem-solving approaches.
The Math Lab is an open lab where tutors rotate from student to student after short sessions. Tutoring is by design intended to promote independent learning, so that students are able to progress over time.
