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 the Centers 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). Math tutoring is also offered at QCC Southbridge, and online tutoring is available through Smarthinking.
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. Students can also participate in group study with their peers. 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, and Connect. Math tutoring is also offered at QCC Southbridge, tutoring for nursing math at the Downtown campus, and online tutoring is available through Smarthinking.
The Math Center has the current Math Department course textbooks and student/instructor solutions manuals to use while in the Center. Additional resources include desktop and laptop computers, tablets, reference material, helpful index cards, a math lending library of books, and placement test review resources for self-study. Computers can be used for math coursework such as MyMathLab, MyStatLab, Connect, Maple, and MATLAB. Please see links on the right side of this website for math resources and study skills videos.
