Bates Study Center & On-line Tutoring

The Bates Study Center provides free, drop-in math and physics tutoring. All tutors can help with algebra, trigonometry, and calculus courses. Many tutors are engineering students and will help with physics courses as well. Other tutors are proficient in higher level math classes.

What can I expect when I visit an ASC Study Center?

What you will find is a quiet study room staffed by peer tutors wearing brightly colored tutor t-shirts and periodically by math professors as well. Students with math and/or physics questions can come on a drop-in basis; no appointments or referrals are necessary.

Math and physics tutors can help with questions from homework, lecture notes, textbooks, practice quizzes, and practice tests. The tutors can’t help with take-home tests, take-home quizzes, or anything else that will be submitted for a quiz or test grade.

All tutors can help with algebra, trigonometry and calculus courses. Many tutors are engineering students and will help with any level of physics. Other tutors are proficient in Discrete Math or Statistics. For a list of tutors, the hours they work, and the courses they tutor in, click on the Tutor Schedule. 


When and where are tutors available?

The Bates Study Center is located on the first floor of the College of Science (Gosnell Building 08, Room 1200) in the building that the majority of your math and physics classes are held. Tutors are available in Bates (in-person) Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday 11am-5pm and online (via Slack) Monday-Thursday 12pm-9pm, Friday 12pm-5pm. All tutors can help with algebra, trigonometry and calculus courses, and others can help with higher level mathematics and physics.


I need help with other subjects (besides math and physics). Where can I find it?

In general, the answer is “no.” The ASC does not normally provide any tutoring other than for math and physics. If you need help with another topic, though, you may stop by the Bates Study Center and a tutor can provide you with information as to when and where tutoring occurs for these other topics.
