Welcome to the Mathematics Literacy Services website.

MLS is a department of the Academic Success Center at Wayne State University!

Our services for the Fall 2022 semester will continue to be in-person and remote.  We will follow all recommended guidelines to ensure the health and safety of students, staff, and faculty!

In response to the preventative measures of Wayne State University, Mathematics Literacy Services (MLS) will continue to provide remote online services for the Spring/Summer 2022 semester. Students will still be able to schedule appointments for

  • Mathematics Study Skills Counseling,
  • Mathematics Placement Assessment Assistance,
  • Tutoring and Concept Knowledge Assistance,
  • Supplemental Mathematics Study Groups, and
  • Office Hours for MAE 1000 and FPC 1010. 

All appointments can be done through stars.wayne.edu. To read instructions on making an appointment through STARS, please click here

All appointments except for Tutoring and Content Knowledge Assistance will be held on Microsoft Teams. For Tutoring and Content Knowledge Assistance appointments, the student will receive a ZOOM link by the morning of the appointment. The student will also get a Microsoft Outlook invite for the appointment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Len Hernandez (dp0963@wayne.edu or 313-577-3246). 



During times of change and uncertainty, it is normal to feel stressed and anxious. These feelings should not be barriers to your understanding of mathematics. MLS is dedicated to helping all students make sense of mathematics, think mathematically, and see how mathematics plays a part in their worlds.



Mathematics Literacy Services supports all mathematics and mathematics-related courses. This includes algebra-based courses (such as MAT 0993, MAT 1050, MAT 1800, and MAT 2010), statistics courses from departments across campus (such as STA 1020 and BA 2300), and Quanitative Experience (QE) courses offered to fulfill General Education requirements (such as MAE 1000, FPC 1010, BA 1200). 

Contact MLS to find out how we can support you on your mathematical journey.
