# The Math Center Located in Chavis 105

### Hours: Sunday - Thursday from 8pm - 10pm

### Who can get help? Math 101 and Math 102 students.

The Math Center is a place for students taking Math 101 or 102 to come and get help on their homework. "The Math Center is staffed by some of our best upper class math majors who can really help these students," said Greg Dresden, Professor of Mathematics. "But they won't just present the student with the solution to a math problem. They'll have students work out the problem on their own and guide them toward finding the right answer. It's not about showing them a clever solution but showing them how they can get to that clever solution."

"So our message to anyone struggling with math is, as soon as you realize you're having difficulty, come and get help. Of course you can always see your professor during office hours, but faculty aren't usually around in the evening. So just turn up at the Math Center. No appointment necessary. Just drop in. Stay for a few minutes or the full two hours, whatever you need."

### Peer Tutors

If you have tried the Math Center, but want a private tutor, you can request a free peer tutor at go.wlu.edu/peertutor. Peer tutors are student volunteers who have been approved and trained. Nearly 100 students each term use a peer tutor.

### Private Math Tutors

If you would like to choose your own private tutor or if you are a non-W&L student, then below are some math majors & math minors who are happy to serve as private tutors for Calculus I or II (or lower level courses if you are a high school school student). If you are interested you should contact them directly and meet with them to discuss arrangements. You should agree upon a time that is convenient for both you and the tutor and also *discuss the hourly rate of pay*. All financial arrangements, terms, and conditions are between you and the tutor. The Math department would appreciate any feedback - both positive and negative - about your tutor. The list below is simply in alphabetical order.
