Assistance is available for any student seeking support with courses or academic projects that are quantitative in nature. In many cases this may be assistance with a specific Liberal Studies Curriculum quantitative reasoning class, but students do not need to be enrolled in a quantitative reasoning class to receive support in improving their quantitative skills. Our goal is to help facilitate and support campus-wide improvement in quantitative reasoning and skills. A variety of quantitative supports are available including peer tutors, study groups, course-specific help sessions, online modules, assistance using quantitative hardware and software (e.g., graphing calculators, Excel, Minitab, SPSS and Maple), and access to self-help resources (e.g., student solution manuals, resource books, online tutorials, etc.).
How do I get a quantitative tutor?
Simply print out and complete the Quantitative Tutor Request Form and drop it off in Durick Library 323, or stop by to fill out a form. You will need your professor’s signature before you can be matched with a tutor.
How long will it take until I start work with the tutor?
You will usually be matched within a day or two, and can then begin working together right away. You and your tutor will agree upon a schedule for meetings.
What do I need to know about my tutor and our tutoring sessions?
You will meet your tutor in the library for about an hour, once, twice, or even three times a week if necessary. Please bring specific questions/problems and your course materials, including your assignments and textbooks. Your tutor is trained, paid, and highly qualified in the subject area you need.
How do I access other quantitative supports besides tutoring?
Please contact Krisan Geary, coordinator of quantitative support, campus office is Durick Library 320, 802.654.2773, to discuss other types of quantitative supports that may be beneficial to you.
