What is Math and Science Services?
Math and Science Services focuses on expanding course content, study skills, and building skill competence
Math and Science Services is NOT:
- A replacement
for professor/instructor office hours. If you are having trouble with
a mathematics or science course, your first step is to seek your professor/instructor's help. Follow their recommendations.
- A solution
factory for graded assignments. Tutors must follow the guidelines set by the professor/instructor, as well as those of Math and Science Services when assisting students with graded work. A tutor “hands-off graded work” policy will be enforced until the coordinator of Math and Science Services is given specifics by the professor/instructor.
- A substitute
lecture for a missed class. Tutors are not instructors and therefore
cannot provide a lecture similar to your professor. However, they can assist in understanding concepts and clarifying any confusions or misconceptions.
- A place
where weeks of classes, homework, and study can be made up with a tutor just prior to a test. The majority of Math and Science services
hours are dedicated to walk-in services. During these hours tutors work to assist multiple students.
