Math & Science Resource Center

Academic Support (Tutoring & Workshops)

The Math & Science Resource Center (MSRC) serves as an Academic Support and Resource center for John Jay College undergraduate students enrolled in Math, Science, and Computer Science courses which is located at 1.94NB (646-557-4635). Available services include tutoring, workshops, walk-in support, free resource borrowing, and computer lab.

Workshops will occur on selected days in a room TBA during the community hour. This year the workshops will only occur the week before and the week of scheduled testing. The student can find the scheduled testing dates on the pacing schedule. The workshops will review material that is scheduled to be on the exam. These workshops are not mandatory but can certainly help the student understand the material covered in class. Any questions about the workshops, please contact the Math & Science Resource Center (MSRC) via email or phone 646-557-4635.

Note: The instructor may give extra credit for attending the workshops consistently. Click here for an exit form to provide your instructor.

How do you get the most out of a tutoring session?

  1. Start right away. Students who begin tutoring from the beginning of the semester typically do better than those who wait.
  2. Book your appointments early. During peak times, you may need to book at least a week in advance to get the times you want.
  3. Come prepared. Please bring your class notes and textbook. Look over the reading and try the problems. If you can, bring a list of specific questions. The more you prepare, the more you will get out of the session.
  4. If you miss a class, please get notes from a classmate before your session. Tutoring is not a substitute for attending class.
  5. If you are repeating the course (previous grade of "F" or "W"), you are eligible to participate in the Math Advancement Program (MAP), which provides weekly one-on-one tutoring with an experienced tutor. Please see the MSRC manager in 1.94NB for details.
  6. If you are a SEEK student, you have access to an additional resource of the SEEK Mathematics Support Program. See below for details.

About in-library reserve
