Simpson math students have the opportunity to provide peer instruction for other students through undergraduate assistantships and tutoring in The Center for Academic Resources.
Tutoring through The Center for Academic Resources serves two purposes for mathematics majors and other students interested in mathematics.
- Academic assistance is provided to all Simpson students free of charge. Any student who needs some extra help to succeed in a math course can contact The Center for Academic Resources and arrange for individual tutoring.
- Math students have an opportunity to earn some extra money while tutoring in their area of interest.
At least four undergraduate assistants are hired each year to work for The Center for Academic Resources. The assistants provide supplemental instruction and tutoring for students in Math 105 Quantitative Reasoning and other mathematics courses. For mathematics students interested in education as a career, assistantships are an excellent opportunity to gain experience.
