Math Lab FAQs
Can I make an appointment to see a math tutor?
No. Tutoring is done on a first-come-first-serve basis. When you enter the Math Lab check to see if any of the tutors are available at the Help Stations. If so, go immediately to the Help Station. If all the tutors are working, please be patient and wait for the next available one.
Do you offer other services besides tutoring?
Yes. You can borrow text books, calculators, and solution manuals. We have a computer lab in MS 210 where you can work on your math coursework. You can take math tests and quizzes in the testing center located in MS 203. Please be sure to check-in at the Help Station in MS 204 before entering the computer lab or testing center.
What should I bring with me to the Math Lab?
If you are interested in getting tutoring help, it is important that you come in with your questions ready, your text book, and any notes from your class. Remember, Math Tutors are prohibited in giving any assistance on work you will receive credit for. However, they can assist you with any text book problems or examples presented by your instructor during class. The tutor's role is to provide assistance NOT to teach you an entire topic.
How busy does it get?
It can get quite busy during the day at the Math Lab. Early afternoons and evening hours are less busy. If the lab is crowded, please be patient.
Is the Math Lab a part of the Learning Resource Center (LRC) at Leeward Community College?
No. The Math Lab is run under the direction of the Math Department.
Who is in charge of the Math Lab?
James Ogg is the Math Lab Manager. He can be reached in his office in MS-205 or by calling 455-0400.
