To cancel an appointment:
Walk-in consultations are permitted, providing the tutor is available and unscheduled. Students are limited to one individual scheduled conference per day and two scheduled conferences per week.
Math Place appointments are most productive when the student seeks help on a specific assignment or subject. If a student is seeking help with a homework assignment, the session will be most productive if the homework is attempted prior to seeing the tutor.
Students should bring with them all materials relevant to their specific goal for the session, such as the course syllabus, class notes, hand-outs, assignment sheets, or workbooks.
Appointments must be scheduled in advance via the SCS Math Place's Google Appointment Calendar .
Math tutoring is also available on the Evanston Campus at the Math Room, located in the Main Library:
