Math Support

Develop confidence, independence, and proficiency with mathematics as you pursue further success in your math courses. This is a Quality Money Project, brought to you by your Students’ Union.

Math Support

The goal of our Math Support program is to help you become a confident and independent math student. Tutors will help you with course content and particular topics, as well as provide advice about study strategies and problem-solving techniques.  While the tutors will help students with many types of math problems, you should be prepared to be actively engaged. Tutors will not complete any steps of an assignment question.

Because these tutoring appointments are only fifty minutes, please come prepared with specific topics to discuss and with one or two questions to go over with the tutor. Note that the SSC Math Tutors are not equipped to TEACH course content. 

Topics by Course
