We also tutor some economics courses, and computer science classes on a drop-in basis.
The Math and Science Tutoring Center is a drop-in tutoring center designed to support the most high-demand Math and Science courses at UMBC. Students are welcome to visit the center anytime during operating hours and to stay as long they would like.
When students enter the center, they should first sign-in, ask the person working the desk about the best tutor for their course. If there is a tutor available, they will help you immediately. If there is not a tutor available, then you will be asked to sit and work quietly for a few minutes until a tutor can get to you. At this time, bring out the questions you have and the work you have already done so you are prepared. The tutors are indicated by the tutoring signs. Feel free to let them know that you need help. The wait time should not exceed ten minutes.
Due to the high demand on tutors in the Math and Science Tutoring Center, they cannot tutor one student for more than fifteen minutes. Students should expect to work independently at different points. Tutors will, however, circle back to check on each student and help as needed. Our tutors often suggest that students in the same course sit together both for efficient tutoring and in the hope that it could lead to future study groups.
