MAC Drop-in Help Session Peer Tutors

With many thanks to the support of WLUSU, the MAC expanded in Fall 2008 to include a traditional drop-in help centre.  Room BA401 on the fourth floor of Bricker Academic has become the MAC's Student Study Centre.

Any student taking a first-year introductory math course, or an introductory statistics course (offered by either the Math Department, or other academic department) will be welcome to make use of the Centre for individual or small group study.

**New for Fall Term 2014**   We will also be running weekly drop-in math help sessions in three residences this term!

Senior students are required to form a team of Peer Tutors, who will provide explanations of concepts and strategies for problem solving to those students seeking math assistance through the drop-in hours.

Candidates must have earned a minimum of an A- grade in at least two 100-level math courses and which include:
     one of MA110*, MA101, MA103;
     and one of MA121, MA122, MA170, MA205, MA240 (or any intro stats course, as offered by other
                                                                    academic departments);
as well as an overall GPA of 7.0 or higher.  Additional qualifications include having excellent communication skills and the ability to model effective learning strategies. 

The time committment is six to eight hours per week, starting the second week of classes.  Rate of pay starts at $17.00 per hour.

Third and fourth year students are preferred, but applications from students in the second year of their program will be considered as well.  Only registered WLU undergraduates may apply.

If interested, please complete the relevant on-line form linked below, or drop by BA432 to find out more information.
