Gardner Hall, Room 360 - Hours
MLC Mission Statement:
The mission of the MLC is to provide a comfortable, supportive, learning environment that encourages intellectual and personal growth for students in mathematics. Mathematics tutors are available to aid students and further their conceptual understanding and procedural fluency in all aspects of their mathematics coursework.
1. Offering mathematical support to all UWP students.
Rationale: Success in a student’s mathematics class is key to retention of that student. This program offers free, drop- in help and support from tutors who are confident in mathematics.
2. Offering a study location that is convenient to where mathematics faculty can support student work.
Rationale: Having a study space in the same building as mathematics faculty offices offers more than one resource for the students. This location encourages students to ask questions of the tutors and/or go to their mathematics professor for help on their questions.
3. Providing a comfortable, quiet space for individual and group study where technology is available to support work.
Rationale: It is important to offer spaces for students to study. As more students come to attend UWP, space for quiet study is at a premium. The MLC offers that space with computers and resource textbooks as additional supports.
Students wishing to receive individual tutoring services should visit the Student Support Services (SSS) office located in Warner 105 to inquire about eligibility, availability and to complete the intake process. Once a student is signed up for the program, that student can request a tutor. Tutoring through SSS is completely free, one-on-one, scheduled, and course-based. All SSS tutoring takes place between 8 a.m.– 5 p.m., Monday through Friday in Warner Hall. More Information
University Tutoring Services (UTS) provides academic support for currently enrolled UW-Platteville students in a variety of undergraduate courses. Tutoring services are a means to supplement classroom instruction, foster independent learning, and assist students in improving their academic skills. UTS offers academic support for students through one-on-one tutoring or small group sessions facilitated by peer tutors. This assistance allows students to develop a deeper understanding of course concepts with the support of peer tutors who clarify course material, assist with study skills, and provide motivation as role models.
