The Math Help Center is located in the Chicoine Architecture, Mathematics and Engineering Hall, Room 292. We provide free walk-in tutoring for students taking MATH 101, 103, 114, 115, 120, 121, 123, 125 and STAT 281 at SDSU.

Fall 2020

In fall 2020, we will start with a hybrid Math Help Center. We will have some hours online and some on-campus tutoring, with limited seating. 

On-Campus tutoring:

We will hold on-campus tutoring in the Chicoine Architecture, Mathematics and Engineering Hall, Room 292.

Due to physical distancing guidelines, we can only have 6 students working in the room at one time. Students will sit at tables and the tutors will stand a few feet back, at the whiteboards. 

Our on campus hours will be Monday-Thursday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Online hours:

We will also hold online tutoring hours on Zoom. The hours will be the following:

  • Monday-Thursday 4-8 p.m.
  • Friday 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
