Math Tutoring Center

The Math Tutoring Center will be offering online tutoring services to students currently enrolled in undergraduate Math courses at GMU.

To access the Math Tutoring Center online, students will need to login to Blackboard, click on the Organizations tab, locate the Math Tutoring Center Organization, and self-enroll into this organization. (I would suggest trying to self-enroll yourself first so that you can know how to show them.)

Students can post their specific questions into the Piazza folder corresponding to their course. They must state their questions clearly and consider uploading a PDF file with their questions. The tutors will answer their questions as soon as possible, but they may have to wait until the following business day. If they receive answers to their questions, but they still need further clarification, they can also join an active Blackboard Collaborate session.

Modern Languages

The Foreign Language Department offers a list of tutors offering services in different languages. Please find this information on their Tutoring in Foreign Languages page
