Changes to Math Tutoring
Due to budget constraints, the Math Teaching Assistants will be required to work primarily within the Math Department rather than work in the Math Lab next semester.
Unfortunately, this means we have to make the following changes to Math Services at the ULC, effective Spring 2016:
- The Math Lab will no longer be open on Sundays.
- The Math Lab will be open fewer hours during the week.
- Study Sessions for PHY 102 and STT 215 will continue to run as usual.
Math is NOT a spectator sport.
To fully understand and appreciate math, one must be involved and practice on a regular basis. Math Services helps students become more confident and independent learners of mathematics through a variety of avenues.
The math lab is a friendly environment where you can study at your own pace with an experienced tutor to guide you through your learning process. The drop-in lab is staffed by graduate students from the math department and certified peer tutors.

Math Services offers one-on-one appointments for those students enrolled in CSC 131, 133, MAT 141-2, PHY 101, 201, 202. Please visit the appointments page to schedule your appointment.
For requests outside the group of supported courses, it may be possible to disseminate the name and contact information of the requestor via our bulletin board in the ULC office for a possible private tutoring scenario.**
For this request to occur, the requestor must:
- Download and complete one of the private tutoring request post (PDF) slips
- Bring this slip to the ULC office (DE 1056) between 8:00am-5:00pm for approval
- All posts will be removed after 30 days
**This scenario would constitute a private contract. However, the ULC does not get involved in the terms of negotiation for such contracts, nor can private contract tutoring take place in the ULC.
