MAC Math Mentoring Program Peer Mentors

Each Fall and Winter Term, the MAC will continue its Math Mentoring Program, first pilotted in 2010.  Reliable senior undergraduate students are required to become peer tutor/mentors for each of the following math courses:

     MA100   Introductory Calculus for the Natural Sciences
     MA101   Calculus I for the Natural Sciences
     MA110* Introduction to Differential and Integral Calculus
     MA121   Introduction to Mathematical Proofs

     MA129   Introductory Calculus for Business and Social Sciences

Responsibilities include conducting two 1.5-hour study sessions each week for a small group of students (maximum of 5) who are repeating one of the relevant first year math courses.  Each session will aim to incorporate effective learning strategies while reviewing and reinforcing course content. 

Peer Mentors will be expected to complete progress journals for each student and to meet with the MAC Coordinator biweekly.

Time commitment is approximately six hours per week, and training is provided during the beginning of the term.  Rate of pay starts at $17.00 per hour.

Candidates must have earned a minimum grade of A- (i.e. 10 on the 12-point grade system) in the course for which they are applying, have excellent communication and organizational skills, and model good learning strategies.  Only students with an overall GPA of 7.0 or higher will be considered.

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