Math Tutoring Labs

The math sciences department works in conjunction with the Student Learning Center to run help labs open to any Appalachian State student.

Tutors are available to help FOR FREE!!!

When you come to lab for help, be sure to bring all of the resources needed (book, notes, assignments, etc.) with you.  Please note that the tutors will NOT do your work for you -- they are there to assist you to do your work yourself!  Come with the work you have done so far to show the tutors what you have been able to do, and what you do not yet understand. Also keep in mind that the labs are not set up for private tutoring, so be prepared to work with other students from the same courses.

For Fall semester 2019, the following help is available. NOTE: Tutoring labs will not be open on days when classes are cancelled (for example convocation day, labor day, etc.).
