The QCC Tutoring Centers, located on the second floor of the Harrington Learning Center (HLC), provide free tutoring for currently enrolled QCC students. The goal of tutoring is to help students improve their course content knowledge and study skills by providing tutoring as a supplement to classroom and online learning. In addition to the Math Center, QCC Tutoring Centers include the Writing Center, the Blackboard Tutoring Center, and the General Academic Areas (GAA).
The Math Center is a welcoming and supportive mathematics tutoring center for QCC students. Tutors can assist students taking a range of math and related courses with homework to develop their understanding of math, as well as strengthen their study skills. Tutoring is drop-in and is provided on an individual and small group basis. Please bring your syllabus and course material when you visit. Tutors can assist with homework problems and examples from QCC math course textbooks and e-books, and similar examples from the course LMS homework, such as MyMathLab, MyStatLab, Connect, and WebAssign. Students can also participate in group study with their peers at the Math Center. Math tutoring is also offered at QCC Southbridge and online tutoring is available through Smarthinking.
Resources for students include all of the current Math Department course textbooks and student/instructor solutions manuals to use while in the Center, desktop and laptop computers for math coursework, software, including Maple and MATLAB, reference material, index cards, a math lending library of books, and placement test review booklets for self-study. Please see the right side of this website for math-related links and videos.
Math, Study Skills, and Technology Workshops
