Finding a tutor

If you are in need of a mathematics or computer science tutor please e-mail:

The Department will help students looking for math or computer science tutors connect with other students interested in tutoring, but we can’t guarantee there will be a tutor available.

The number of students looking for a tutor often exceeds the number of students available to act as tutors.

Students seeking tutoring opportunities are encouraged to contact the department to express their interest/indicate their availability.


Calculator policy

Each course and each professor may have different requirements. A basic scientific calculator may be useful on some homework assignments, but a lot of work, in many math courses, won't require a calculator at all.

Calculators are prohibited during midterms and final exams in some courses.

At present we don't have any courses that require the use of graphing or programmable calculators.
