Welcome to Regent's Math Tutoring Center. Located in the Library Suite 218, the Math Tutoring Center provides coaches who are familiar with the challenges of mathematics. Our math tutors offer guidance for undergraduate students enrolled in MATH 101, MATH 102, MATH 201, MATH 211, MATH 212, and Praxis Test Preparations to gain a more complete understanding of their coursework. Tutoring is available in-person and online via Blackboard Collaborate.

The Math Tutoring Center is staffed by trained math students who assist Regent University undergraduate students enrolled in MATH 101, MATH 102, MATH 201, MATH 211, MATH 212, and Praxis Test Preparation. Our primary goal is to help students better understand mathematics concepts and techniques. Therefore, our coaching sessions provide tools for collaboratively improving and strengthening students' understanding.

Students may bring homework to receive help, but it is recommended that they attempt the problems prior to arriving for tutoring in order for an assessment to be made of the students' needs. Math tutors do not complete assignments; rather, they work to help the student better understand the concepts and skills. During a tutoring session, students can expect to be given an explanation of concepts, example problems to complete, and suggestions for ongoing improvement.

NOTE: Math Tutors do not help students with quizzes or exams in accordance with the policies of the Mathematics Department of the university.

The Math Tutoring Center offers one-on-one assistance to any Regent University undergraduate student enrolled in MATH 101, MATH 102, MATH 201, MATH 211, MATH 212, and Praxis Test Preparation. Our coaches help students evaluate the sources of problems they encounter by going through formulas, homework problems, and practice quizzes together to help students gain a more complete understanding of their coursework for future assignments. Coaching is available in-person or via Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.

- Coaching is available in 45 minute sessions for scheduled appointments.
- "Walk-In" and "Call-In" sessions (15-30 min) are also welcome but are contingent upon coach availability; to ensure accessibility, scheduled appointments are recommended, particularly during peak seasons. Online students may call the Math Tutoring Center for "Call-In" sessions.
- Students are allowed one appointment per day and up to three appointments a week. This limit includes both scheduled appointments and walk-in sessions. Students can also schedule appointments up to two months in advance.
