Mathematics tutoring is available to students virtually beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
Tutors will be tutoring and helping students with their mathematics and statistics questions virtually, primarily through email and chat. Students can email their questions to the tutoring email listed below, tutors will be monitoring the email and will be available to answers questions throughout select portions of the day.
How to submit questions to tutors
Between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, tutors will be responding to questions submitted by students via email to [email protected]. Students are asked to limit their questions to the primary areas of concern in order to get the best feedback possible.
For high volume times, the duration of the tutoring sessions may be capped at 30 minutes.
Due to staffing limitations, we may have to reduce or restrict the availability of this service. We are also working on other modes in order to best serve students in the online format. We will update everyone if/when changes are made.
We will be doing our best to meet the needs of everyone who submits questions. Please be aware that response time may fluctuate, but that we are doing our very best with what we have.
For any questions, please contact Sara Lynne Schultz, Coordinator of the Mathematics Tutoring Center, at [email protected].
On-campus math tutoring will resume when face to face classes resume.
Mathematics Tutoring Center Services
Located at 411 Pray-Harrold, the Mathematics Tutoring Center is comprised of a suite of rooms providing the following:
Free drop-in tutoring for EMU students is available during all hours that the Math Lab is open. You can stop in for help with:
- Specific math homework problems or math concepts
- Studying for the math placement exams
- Studying for standardized tests such as the GRE or GMAT
The Math Lab provides access to computers for use by students for academic purposes, such as working on online homework.
Textbooks and Calculators
Calculators as well as textbooks for most EMU math courses are available for use in the Math Lab. These materials may not be removed from the Math Lab for any reason. You must leave a form of collateral, either keys or a phone, at the front desk while you are using one of our resources.
Student Usage Tracking
All students using the Math Lab are required to log in at the front desk upon arriving and to log out at the front desk prior to leaving. This is very important because the continuation of funding for tutors depends on the usage data gathered through the log in system.
