The Marshak Math/Physics Tutoring Center is located in the Marshak Science Building, room MR 403. Tutoring is available for all math courses at the level of calculus 3 and below, differential equations and linear algebra. Tutoring is also available for general physics 1 and 2. Limited tutoring may be provided for other courses in math and physics, depending on the experience of the current tutors. The hours of operation for the Spring 2020 semester are Mondays through Thursdays 12pm - 5pm and Fridays 12pm - 4pm. The tutoring center will be open from February 3rd, 2020 to May 22nd, 2020.

  • Note that the math/physics tutoring center will be closed whenever the college is closed or on recess. In general, the center follows the college's academic calendar, which can be found here.

Want to tutor, but can't tutor with us?

Sometimes, because of schedule or insufficient subject requirements, we may not be able to hire you as a tutor. But that does not mean you should give up on the dream of becoming one. There are many tutoring centers around campus that need motivated, proficient tutors--and they will often have less strict requirements.
