Math Help Center

Free math tutoring!  Does it get any better than that?

The Math Help Center is located in the Architecture, Mathematics & Engineering building, 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.

Coronavirus update:

We will continue the Math Help Center tutoring using Zoom. It will be much like our normal MHC: you can join in (via a link) without an appointment. There will be 2-3 tutors working at a time. If students are working on multiple topics, the tutors can create "breakout" rooms, where a tutor can go with you or a group to a separate "room" to work on that subject. We thank you for you patience as we learn best how to serve you.

Below is the link you can use, starting March 23rd:

(It will not be staffed on 4/10 and 4/13 for the holiday).

When you enter the room, it may be quiet, and the tutors are waiting for someone to help, but if it is busy, and the tutors are explaining something to another student, use the chat feature to ask for help. A tutor may ask you to wait for a few minutes or they may create a “breakout” room where you can work on your subject. 

We thank you for your patience. We believe we can help you with your math, but we are trying out this Zoom version of the MHC for the first time and we apologize for any troubles.

If you have any trouble with the link, email
