Math Assistance Center

Status: The MAC will open for the summer sessions on Thursday, May 19th, for walk-in assistance only. The schedule of graduate TA's will be posted on Wednesday, May 18th.

The Math Assistance Center’s Mission

The Math Assistance Center seeks to enhance your understanding of mathematics through effective and focused tutoring. Our undergraduate tutors can provide explanations, guidance, and helpful study strategies for those students who are seeking to overcome the barriers and difficulties that so often appear in mathematics courses. Additionally, students may visit their graduate TA in the Math Assistance Center to receive more advanced assistance or advice pertinent to the course(s) they are taking. Regardless of your reasons for visiting the MAC, we hope that it is a productive and useful endeavor.


MAC Operation for Summer 2022

The Math Assistance Center will open on Thursday, May 19th, for walk-in assistance. The MAC is staffed only by graduate students during the summer sessions, hence there are no appointments available with undergraduate tutors. The schedule(s) of graduate students and the courses with which they can assist will be posted on Wednesday, May 18th, so that you may find graduate TA's who can most readily assist you with your course. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Dr. Hockensmith at hockens2@pitt.edu.
