Becoming a Calculus Workshop Tutor
The Mathematical Science Department hires Calc Workshop tutors for Fall and Spring semesters. Tutors must be undergraduates, have completed the Calculus series up to and including 234 (or 240 & 320) with a B or better, and have at least a 3.0 GPA.
To apply, contact Jane Miles in the Mathematical Sciences Department office EMS E403.
Panther Academic Support Services (PASS)
Panther Access to Student Services (PASS) provides supplemental academic services for many subject areas including math. Tutoring is located in the Golda Meir Library, East Wing, on the 1st floor. Students may go there to sign up for weekly tutoring sessions.
Starting Spring 2017, PASS handles all tutoring for Math courses numbered 211 or lower, with the exception of Math 115, 116, and 117. The Math Sci Department no longer offers walk-in tutoring in the library for Math courses. See our tutoring options for MthStat 215 (in library), Math 115, 116, & 117 (online HW lab & calc workshop), and 231—234 & 240 (calc workshop) described above.
