Tutorial Center

The Tutorial Center is located in the Frank P. Doyle Library, First Floor, Room 4251. Phone 521-6903.
Petaluma Campus: The Tutorial Center, located in Kathleen Doyle Bldg. room 247 (i.e., PC-247), offers math tutoring on a drop-in or appointment basis during specified hours. Students can call 778-2409 for additional information.

The center offers three different types of mathematics tutoring:

  • Drop-In. Students can drop in for assistance in studies at any time during the hours the Tutorial Center is open. Instructional Aides and Student Tutors are available for assistance. Math levels up through Math 156 are available all day, and for advanced classes as scheduled.
  • Individual Appointments. A student can request a Student Tutor for one hour a week for individual tutoring for the entire semester.
  • Math Groups. Research shows that students who work in groups perform better in math courses. Math groups can be formed by four students or more from the same class and are tutored by Instructional Aides for one hour at the same time every week. We especially encourage students to form study groups.
