The department and university offer an array of academic support services for students.
Your instructor's office hours are the first way you should seek help if you are struggling in a class. Don't feel like you need a "good question" to approach your instructor. If you cannot make scheduled office hours all instructors will schedule alternate times by appointment, within reason.
The department of mathematics and statistics provides drop-in tutoring to support all mathematics and statistics courses from elementary algebra to Calculus III. Help sessions are staffed by advanced mathematics students, and no appointments are necessary.
Spring 2021 Hours
For Spring 2021, help sessions will be conducted via Zoom. You will need to log in to Zoom with your SLU account.
Spring 2021 help sessions will continue through finals week until the end of the day on Monday, May 17.

SLU's Student Success Center provides academic support across the curriculum, and can match you with an individual tutor for help in mathematics and statistics courses from elementary algebra to differential equations.
Computer Science Tutors
The computer science department provides drop-in tutoring to support computational math courses MATH 1660 Discrete Mathematics and R-based statistics courses such as MATH/STAT 3850 Foundations of Statistics. Tutoring hours are held in ISE 216 and no appointments are necessary. Spring 2021 hours are all on zoom. See the computer science tutoring page for details and posted hours.
The department maintains a list of individuals offering private tutoring for a fee. Contact the department for more information.
Success in Mathematics
Created by the department in 1993, the Success in Mathematics document is still relevant to success in mathematics courses today. Printed copies are available by request.
