In-person and virtual services offered for fall 2020 semester

 

Virtual tutoring in the Math Center

More information for virtual and in-person tutoring this semester is available in a Moodle course called "Virtual Math Center." Check Moodle to see if you already have access. If you do not yet have access, but would like it, email Dr. Heather Ames Lewis (using your Nazareth College email) at hlewis5@naz.edu to request to be added.  Drop in online tutoring is also available through the Zoom link in the Virtual Math Center


In-person tutoring in the Math Center will be available

Location: Peckham 202 (by the Braveman Student Collaborative Center)
Phone: 585-389-2671

Only 1-2 students can be in the Math Center (along with the tutor) at a time. Sign up through the link posted in the Virtual Math Center in the Moodle course discussed above or just drop in if the tutor is available. 

The Math Center offers:

  • a place to study (limited capacity during FA20)
  • peer tutors for free drop-in tutoring – no appointments necessary
  • solutions manuals and alternative texts (for some classes)

Tutors can help with all 100-level and most 200-level math courses. In addition, they can help with:

  • general math questions, even from other courses or subjects
  • math questions in computer assignments, even if they are not familiar with the computer programs themselves.

Although FA20 has required some changes, it is the hub of of the Mathematics Department.  The Math Club uses this setting as their home base. The majors enjoy time with each other, either discussing real work or real life, and the tutors welcome all others who would like to know more. Majors and non-majors alike use it as a valuable learning resource as well as a gathering place.
