The Texas A&M University College of Engineering has partnered with the Academic Success Center (ASC) and the Math Learning Center to provide academic support services such as peer tutoring and Supplemental Instruction (SI). These services enhance student learning and success in math, chemistry, physics and engineering courses. Students working toward an A or B average in their coursework should consider regularly using these academic support services.

Peer Tutoring

For help with chemistry, physics and engineering courses

Peer tutors are undergraduate students hired by the ASC to help engineering students with their physics, chemistry and engineering courses. Peer tutors are available by appointment to meet online, in Evans Library (1st Floor), and in the Leach Learning Resource Center (ZACH 282M and 282P). Assistance is available in two formats: 1-on-1 tutoring sessions and small group tutoring sessions. For instructions on how to reserve your tutoring appointment in Navigate, visit the ASC’s Tutoring website. If you choose not to reserve a tutoring appointment, drop-in tutoring is available in Evans Library (1st Floor, Whitley Suite), Monday through Thursday from 1-7 p.m.

Math Help Sessions and Week-In-Review Sessions

Hosted by the Math Learning Center

A student's success in their first math course at Texas A&M is strongly correlated with success in engineering. To foster a solid math foundation and enhance student learning, the Math Learning Center (MLC) offers Help Sessions and Week in Review sessions. Services are offered online and in-person.

  • MLC Help Sessions are drop-in tutoring sessions taught by undergraduate peer tutors offered online via Zoom and in-person in the Blocker building (BLOC).
  • MLC Week-In-Review sessions are taught by faculty who revisit material covered in the corresponding course during the prior week. Sessions are offered online in a synchronous (LIVE) format. Select sections, marked as DUAL, offer synchronous live in-person and remote options. 

These sessions are held Monday through Thursday. For more information on meeting times and locations, visit the Math Help Sessions and the Week in Review websites.

Math Tutoring by Appointment

Hosted by the Math Learning Center

The MLC offers free math tutoring by appointment to help undergraduate students improve their math skills. The MLC also offers the Virtual Math Learning Center (VMLC) - an online resource with high-quality study guides, handouts, and video libraries for Math 150, 151, 152, 251, 304, and 308.
