Mathematics content assistance

Mathematics Literacy Services offers content-knowledge assistance for Wayne State University students taking mathematics courses up to Calculus 2 (MAT 2020) in three forms; one-on-one tutoring, supplemental math study groups, and on-line tutoring sessions.

When attending your appointment/session, please make sure you bring worked out problems and questions. The mathematics learning specialist will work through the problems with the student. Our approach to learning mathematics is by doing mathematics. 


One-on-one tutoring is by appointment only. These requests go straight to the Mathematics Learning Specialist, Len Hernandez and are NOT on the second floor of the UGL. These appointments will be at the Academic Success Center, located on the first floor of the Undergraduate Library (UGL). Make sure to let the front desk know you are there to see Len Hernandez.
