About the Lab
Math Lab peer and professional tutors offer walk-in support and online and on-campus appointments. Math tutors clarify complex concepts, review course material, guide students through challenging assignments, and provide information on calculator use. They also help students prepare for exams with practice tests, formula sheets, review sessions, and strategies to decrease math anxiety.
Bre is a fantastic tutor! There are so many situations where I really needed her for help, and she explained and broke things down so vividly and made them so easy for me to understand. I will continue to utilize her help in future classes.
They're great, honestly, some of the best people I've met.
Jeremy is an excellent tutor and the 'A' I received in my Elementary Statistics class was earned through his instruction. He is funny, very intelligent, and passionate about math, which comes across in his confidence and upbeat demeanor.
Breanne is an excellent tutor. She always explained things well and in a way I could understand. Being in an online asynchronous math class was a challenge for me but after my tutoring sessions with her, I had a much better understanding of the course material.
Aleksey is awesome! He definitely cares and takes the time to really explain and help you understand everything. I am greatly thankful that I was lucky enough to have Aleksey as a tutor. I probably wouldn't have been able to be as successful in my math class as I was, if it weren't for him.
I really love the tutors that I had for the classes I had issues in.
Breanne is not only a great tutor but also an amazing friend. She really cares about the people she meets with. She has great communication skills and helps me understand the subject completely! Before I enter the room, I am usually very stressed and depressed, by the end of my time spent in there, I am confident and happy! I would recommend her to anyone. She is a lovely spirit!!!
My tutoring sessions have been a great asset in helping me better understand my class.
Breanne has been instrumental in greatly improving my understanding of the course material. She knows math backwards and forwards and is able to explain difficult concepts in a way that makes sense. Thanks to her help I have a chance at a much better grade on the final.
Aleksey does a great job and is well engaged, showing true interest in helping anyone with respect to MA110 and as I would assume any other subject that he is a tutor in. He is an asset for MVCC.
