The Mathematics Tutoring Lab Director is Kyle Riggs (Kingston 305).  The Tutoring Lab is staffed by tutors who are undergraduate majors & graduate students with high academic standards in mathematics courses. Tutors may also be a future teacher or student who enjoys mathematics and assisting students in learning mathematics.

There is a tutor schedule posted in the lab showing tutors who are helping each hour and which courses they can help with. The wages of tutors who work in Math Tutoring Lab are funded by Course Fees assessed quarterly from students enrolled in the following courses at EWU: MTHD 103 & 104 and MATH  106, 107, 114, 141, 142, 161, 162, 163, 200, 211, 212, 380 and 385. Therefore, EWU students enrolled in the preceding math courses will have first priority to receive assistance from a tutor in the Mathematics Tutoring Lab. Note: The average math course fee assessed quarterly is $13.50 per student.

EWU students enrolled in a math course without an assessed course fee are welcome to study in the Mathematics Tutoring Lab (KGS 337) and may be assisted by a tutor, when possible.  It is helpful to the tutors for the students to bring class notes and assignments when they come to the lab.

To request a list of private tutors who work independently from the Department of Mathematics and may charge $15 - $50 per hour and please e-mail (kriggs3@ewu.edu) or call (509) 359-4315. This list is also posted in the Math Lab.

In addition to the Math Tutoring Lab, students enrolled in MATH 107 and above are encouraged to attend PLUS group sessions for their course (see schedule here). When a student is unable to attend Math Tutoring Lab or their scheduled PLUS group sessions they can check out the PLUS drop-in math tutoring schedule on the PLUS website: https://sites.ewu.edu/plus/ or talk to an office aide on duty at the PLUS Desk on the main level of JFK Library in the Learning Commons to inquire about other free services like one-on-one tutoring, academic coaching, and more (509-359-6505 or plusstudent@ewu.edu).

PLUS also provides access to a free online tutoring service through the Western eTutoring Consortium. Eastern students have access to online tutoring during morning, afternoon, and evening hours, weekends, summers, and most holidays.  There is no contract and no appointment necessary. Tutors for various subjects including math  should be available for certain dates/times (they are scheduled) through Live Tutoring (there is a clear schedule and calendar to view within the portal).

  • This means students can meet "live" with a tutor from one of the affiliated colleges/universities in the Western US, sharing their screen and uploading files (that can be marked up with a whiteboard function), using audio/visuals through Adobe Connect, etc. Students can also upload an eQuestion and normally a response is provided within 24 hours. Information can be accessed here: https://sites.ewu.edu/plus/etutoring/
  • Students can also access the online tutoring portal directly here. There is a video overview (blue box) to watch and become more familiar with the service and a downloadable PDF guide.
