In the Math Lab, students can get help with all levels of mathematics courses from learning support through calculus. Alternative textbooks, computer programs, practice worksheet, and instructional handouts may be provided for further success. We also have a peer tutor available. Please feel free to drop in with any math question. We are here to help you understand challenging mathematical concepts.
Hours of Operation
Math tutors are here at most times. Updated schedules can be found on the library website at http://www.my.calendars.net/octutors
Please check the above schedule before coming to make sure there will be someone available. You can find the tutors back in the Math Help corner or by asking at the Information Help Desk in the library.
Math tutoring is available on a drop-in basis only.
What Students Should Bring to a Tutoring Session:
- Problem(s) that have already been fully attempted
- Textbook and notes from class
- Specific areas of concern
- Formula sheets and calculators, if necessary
What Students Should NOT Expect from a Tutoring Session:
- To have one-on-one tutoring the whole time during the stay in the lab. Tutors will circulate around the lab and alternate between students.
- To have homework done by tutors. Students will do their own work following a tutor’s example.
- To have tutors teach material missed in class due to absences. Students should see their instructors during office hours.

The Heart Math method is a breakthrough solution that shows you how to transform emotional and mental energy (e.g. Testing Anxiety) into new, satisfying feelings and intelligent perceptions that ease stress. Students who use the Heart Math principles increased their math test scores by up to 35%. Students interested in Heart Math should schedule an initial appointment with Dr. Hawley (to schedule an appointment please click here: http://www.uburst.com/cgi-bin/ureserve/hosted/gsc.pl
). After the initial session, students should make appointments to practice the technique in the Testing Center, room 201, with Erin Williams.
