Mathematics Assistance Center

The Mathematics Assistance Center (MAC) is here to equip students with the skills needed to succeed in math and statistics as well as dispel myths and negative attitudes associated with math.

We are located in the Learning Commons on the first floor of the Ottenheimer Library. Although walk-in students are welcome, an appointment is preferred in order to guarantee a tutor is available at the time you need tutoring.

We offer in-person tutoring in the Learning Commons, virtual synchronous tutoring via Zoom, and asynchronous tutoring through wkbarker@ualr.edu.
