We are happy that you have decided to use the ACE Tutoring Center for math tutoring. We have a staff of full and part-time math learning specialists with academic degrees as well as peer tutors to help you succeed in math classes.
The purpose of the ACE Tutoring Center is to assist St. Charles Community College students in their learning. It is meant to supplement class time and instructor office hours. The ACE Tutoring Center is a wonderful resource and is best utilized when following these guidelines.
Tutoring for math is available only to students currently enrolled in a mathematics course at SCC.
SCC students can schedule a time to meet with a tutor for a 25-minute session in person or by calling ahead.
Students can schedule up to four sessions per week up to one week in advance; back-to-back appointments will not be allowed.
Appointments will be cancelled for students who are ten minutes late, and the next student waiting will be helped. Three no-shows and/or cancellations will cause restrictions on making future appointments.
Students must study the material and begin the problems before working with a tutor. The ACE Tutoring Center is a tutoring center, not a homework center. Homework should be done elsewhere.
Students who need extensive review should use the appropriate learning aids available – websites, dvds, computer software programs, etc.
Tutors will work and explain examples only from the text and/or class notes. They will also give study tips and answer specific questions.
Tutors will not assume responsibility for completing homework, but rather will seek to help students understand the concepts involved. Tutors will not assume responsibility for covering material when a student misses a class.
Tutors are required to follow the methods taught in class. Students must have their class notes so the tutors can consult them to determine the instructor’s preferred approach. The methods presented in the textbook will be the second choice.
ACE Tutoring Center tutors will not work problems on take-home exams or quizzes.
