Resource Center for Math and Science

The Resource Center for Math and Science is here to heighten your academic success.

In the Resource Center for Math and Science (RCMS), peer tutors work with students in a one-on-one, inclusive environment. Our learning assistants help students academically succeed by improving their understanding of both introductory and advanced concepts. 

Any student enrolled in undergraduate astronomy, biology, chemistry, math or physics courses can receive unlimited peer tutoring during the academic year. No appointment is required! 

We support critical thinkers.

Whether you are a STEM major or only completing a core requirement, the RCMS learning assistants are here for you. Studying at the RCMS boosts your course grade outcome by three more points than those who study alone. Getting tutoring is easy, and no appointment is needed!

We foster community.

The RCMS provides a space where students can teach each other how to navigate coursework and campus activities. Our learning assistants build a bridge between faculty and students by providing supplemental instruction outside the classroom. In our weekly workshops, you'll develop study groups and lasting relationships for the semester and your career to come.
