How Zoom Tutoring Works:

Technology instructions for Zoom

For our online tutoring, we recommend you have questions when you arrive.  They can be specific questions about where you've gotten stuck, have uncertainty in your method, or are not sure how to start.  You can also ask big picture questions regarding topics you're confused about.   To help you succeed, we will provide hints, ask questions to help you think about the mathematics in different ways, and assist you in making realizations on your own.  We must be careful not to solve problems for you. Not only is that academic misconduct but it doesn't help you learn!  Ultimately we want you to be doing as much of the mathematics as possible so you can succeed independently on your quizzes and exams. 

To get the most out of online tutoring, we recommend you have a method of writing on your screen (such as an iPad) as typing mathematics can be difficult.  Next best would be sharing pictures, either by uploading pictures or by holding your paper in front of your video camera.  Being able to communicate via audio is also extremely beneficial.  However, if typing in the text box or calling is your only option, we still welcome you!

To enter the Zoom tutor room, you will need to be logged into your OSU account.  If you are having difficulties accessing Zoom during our open hours, first consult the technology instructions.  If you're still having difficulties, email mslc@math.osu.edu or contact the IT Service Desk (ServiceDesk@osu.edu, or call 614-688-4357 (HELP)

How MSLC Tutoring Works

  • Drop-in means that no appointment is necessary.  Just come on in!
  • Many students use the tutoring center as a place to do their math homework between classes. It's like studying in the library or coffee shop but with the added benefit of a tutoring there to help. Feel free to bring your coffee with you.
  • We have pods of tables so bring your friends/classmates to work on homework together.
  • You can ask specific homework questions about where you've gotten stuck, have uncertainty in your method, or are not sure how to start.  You can also ask big picture questions regarding topics you're confused about.  
  • To help you succeed, we will provide hints, ask questions to help you think about the mathematics in different ways, and assist you in making realizations on your own.  We must be careful not to solve problems for you. Not only is that academic misconduct but it doesn't help you learn!  Ultimately we want you to be doing as much of the mathematics as possible so you can succeed independently on your quizzes and exams.

  • Use an App such as notability or OneNote to keep your homework work organized.  This will help you study, practice writing out work for exams, and will aid tutors in assisting you.
  • Rather than googling for solutions if you're stuck, go to online tutoring to get more personalized help.  Solutions will give you the answer but ultimately you need to be able to solve problems on quizzes and exams.  Tutoring is more effective long term.
