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.

Student Success Center
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.
For the remainder of Spring 2020, the Student Success Center is scheduling appointment based tutoring with Zoom. See this document for details.
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 the Linux Lab (Ritter Hall 117) and no appointments are necessary. 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.
