If you need help in higher-level mathematics courses, please visit Tutorial Services.
A face-to-face session with a Bierce Math Lab tutor is an ideal way to get assistance with your math skills. However, because of time or geographic constraints, it may not always be possible for you to schedule an appointment in the Lab.
An alternative to Bierce Math Lab is eChat, a service of eTutoring.org. With eChat, you meet with a tutor in a one-on-one session through an interactive, online environment. When you log into eChat, you view the weekly schedule to see when tutors are available online to discuss your math questions with you. Your online tutor will not give you the answers to your math problems but will guide you to find those answers yourself.
eChat supports not only math but also the following subject areas: accounting, anatomy and physiology, biology, calculus, chemistry, and statistics.
eQuestion, the offline question service, allows you to leave a specific question for an eTutor, who will respond within 48 hours (but usually sooner).
