Tutoring Center Information
Trained undergraduate students and faculty members from the Mathematics Department (including the Tutoring Center Coordinator) are available to provide FMU students with one-on-one subject specific tutoring in a wide variety of subjects. Popular subjects include Mathematics and Statistics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Business, Accounting, Writing, and various languages. Tutorials are available by appointment (recommended) or on a drop-in basis (subject to tutor availability).
Upon arriving at the Tutoring Center, students will be placed with their tutor, or can see the desk assistant to book an appointment if they do not already have one.
The Tutoring Center plans to offer online tutoring beginning in Fall 2017. Online tutoring appointments will be booked through the same page as face-to-face appointments, and will take advantage of the workspace available in the MyWCOnline platform.

The Tutoring Center is always seeking applications from bright, motivated students who wish to become peer tutors! Prospective tutors should contact the Tutoring Center faculty coordinator, Dr. Julian Buck, for more information about becoming a tutor. Alternatively, students can download an application form here and return it to Dr. Buck (in LSF L402) or leave it with the Tutoring Center desk assistant.
We encourage students to provide feedback about their tutoring appointments by filling out a post-appointment survey.
The Tutoring Center provides a variety of resources for students:
- A library of textbooks, manuals, and handbooks. We aim to provide current (or near-current) editions of textbooks for many popular courses.
- Six computer terminals with internet access and virtual desktops. Students can use these to access Blackboard and online homework platforms, book tutoring appointments, complete feedback forms, and more. Students are always welcome to bring their own laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc. for their tutoring appointments.
- Whiteboard tables that facilitate student-tutor interaction in a fun, dynamic way!
