Math Place

The Math Place offers FREE TUTORING for undergraduate students!

UB students can receive tutoring in ULC and Calculus 1 and 2 courses.  During the Fall 2022 semester, the Math Place will be open in person Monday-Thursday, 10am-6pm in Baldy 211, and virtually Sunday 2pm-6pm on Discord.


You can get help with homework or preparing for a test, meet with a study group, and have your questions answered by knowledgeable and approachable peer tutors.  We’re here to help!


The Math Place is FREE to use for UB students registered for ULC 147, ULC 148, MTH 121, MTH 122, MTH 131, MTH 141, MTH 142, MTH 153, and MTH 154.  

How does tutoring work?

The Math Place is a drop-in tutoring center for ULC 147, ULC 148, MTH 121, MTH 122, MTH 131, MTH 141, MTH 142, MTH 153, and MTH 154.  During the Spring 2022 semester, we are offering in person tutoring in Baldy 211 and virtual tutoring through Discord.  For in person tutoring, you can drop in, no appointment necessary, and meet with tutors to ask questions about your assignments, study for quizzes and exams, and review your course material for a more thorough understanding.  On our Discord server, you can post questions in the text channel which tutors will post a response to, or you can voice/video chat with tutors on Sundays. 

You can work individually or come meet others from your class for a study group, and you are more than welcome to visit multiple times in one week, or even on the same day!

What can you expect from tutoring**?

The purpose of tutoring is to help you become an active, independent learner. Working with a tutor can enrich your understanding of the course material, help you focus on what is important in the class, and help you apply better study methods.

Tutors can:

  • Review and help clarify assignments
  • Help you understand concepts that the instructor has already presented in class
  • Provide you with additional examples and practice problems
  • Help you understand the textbook and apply the information

Tutors cannot:

  • Do your homework for you
  • Guarantee an error-free assignment or a better grade; it is still your responsibility to do the work
  • Teach new material missed in class; tutoring is not a substitute for classroom instruction
  • Help with take-home or make-up tests
