The MAA is staffed by full time COD mathematics faculty and non-classroom part time faculty providing one-on-one help with homework problems or clarifying concepts from math coursework. Sessions may be limited to 15 minutes when other students are waiting, but students may have unlimited turns. For appointment-based math tutoring complete a Tutoring Services Request Form
