Tutoring Resources

Math Resources

At the University of Montana, we recognize that passing a math class can be hard, especially when students don’t have access to extra help and assistance. We are committed to helping students get the support they need to be successful. We offer free, drop-in math tutoring for any student taking math and statistics courses through the 200-level. The Math Learning Center (MLC) offers trained and experienced tutors who are ready to help students work through whatever issues they’re having in their class, whether it be homework, test preparation, clarification and deeper understanding of ideas presented in class, or just someone to listen to them say, “This is hard.” Our tutors have been there, too, and want to help make the process a little easier for their fellow students.

The Math Learning Center 

Located in the basement of the Math Building (look for the MLC over the door by the bottom of the stairs and the signs on the Oval), tutors at the MLC help with a wide range of courses, including developmental studies, Contemporary Math, College Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus 1 and 2, Probability, Statistics, and Math for Elementary Teachers. Follow them on Instagram and Twitter @Grizzly_Math to find out about special sessions for Linear Algebra and Multivariable Calculus, too. 

For more information, please visit The Math Learning Center.

The Writing and Public Speaking Center

The Writing and Public Speaking Center works with students, faculty, and staff as they write papers, letters, applications, or prepare presentations in any discipline. They help students interpret assignments, generate and organize ideas, edit prose, synthesize and integrate research, develop timed writing strategies, and deliver presentations. Zoom consultations are available by appointment online. Drop-in hours are available at the Payne Center, Wednesdays and Thursdays 11 to 1.

Writing and Public Speaking Center Hours:

The Writing and Public Speaking Center offers consultations Sunday through Friday. Please visit our website for current tutoring hours.
