Math, Science & Technology Resource Center Guidelines and Policies

In order to keep a safe environment for everyone, students in SSC are expected to follow the Student Code of Conduct (Administrative Procedure 5510). If you violate the Code of Conduct (for example, by being disrespectful or disruptive) you may be asked to leave and/or be reported to Student Judicial Affairs.

SSC tutors are not permitted to help with quizzes, tests, midterms, exams, or projects.

To encourage independent learning, tutors will help you understand concepts rather than working on homework directly. Tutors are trained and knowledgeable peers, but are not expected to have every solution.

Please also see the Student Success Center Guidelines and Policies for more information.

Drop-In Tutoring

Drop-in tutoring usually begins week 2 of each quarter. Be aware that tutor hours are limited and there may not be a tutor available in your subject during certain times. Visit the MSTRC drop-in tutoring webpage for more information.

On-Campus Drop-In Tutoring (Located in S43)

Drop-in tutors will circulate around the Study Tables to maximize learning for all by distributing their time among students needing help. You may study and do work for your classes at the designated Study Tables during Center open hours.

Online Zoom Drop-In Tutoring

To be respectful of our tutors and other students who may also be waiting for help, please try to keep each drop-in session to no more than 30-40 minutes. If needed, you may request additional help after working on your own for 20-30 minutes.

Weekly Individual Tutoring

Students in pre-college level math courses may receive up to two hours of weekly individual tutoring per week. Student in selected college-level courses may receive one hour per week.

Weekly individual tutoring fills quickly. Please request as early in the quarter as possible. 

If you have special needs, please speak to the staff to let us know. 

Visit the MSTRC weekly individual tutoring webpage for signing up or for more information.

Group Tutoring

Quarter-long weekly sessions for up to two hours per week for selected courses. 

If interested, form a group of at least four students from the same class and request group tutoring in S43. We will do our best to accommodate the request, depending on tutor and room availability.

Visit the MSTRC group tutoring webpage for signing up or for more information.
