This semester we are privileged to have a staff of very knowledgeable math graduate students, all of whom are experienced instructors. Click on this link to see the tutors’ schedules.
The MLC provides a group tutoring experience: Students are asked to work together with other students in the same course. Tutors assist the groups and individual students with their questions by giving hints and guiding students towards the correct solution. Working in small groups with your peers is an effective way to learn. By combining this with a tutoring experience the MLC strives to encourage students to develop this skill as well as provide quality math instruction.
Students who wish to have a one-on-one tutoring experience might consider hiring a private tutor. For a list of math graduate students who tutor please consult the Private Math Tutor List.
During the summer sessions the MLC assists students in any summer math class taught at IU Bloomington. To list a few, we will help students from the following classes: J10, J110, J111, M025, M118, M119, M211, M212, K310, M303, M311, M343, M365, M453, and M463.
This tutoring service is on a walk-in basis; no appointment is necessary. When you visit the MLC you will be asked to sign the visitor’s book. Be sure to print your name and include your math course number, instructor’s name, and the time of your visit. Some instructors use this information to determine extra credit. It also helps the MLC monitor and improve its services.
During the summer there are no Math Department Help Sessions or tutoring in the dormitories at the Academic Support Centers.We look forward to your visits.
