The Mathematics Department provides face-to-face and online tutoring for math classes offered through the math department at WKU. The sessions are free. Online tutoring sessions do require an appointment (details are below).

Tutoring sessions are held online using Adobe Connect Pro (ACP). ACP offers one-on-one interaction with the ability to see your tutor work through the math problem online. You can also ask questions as you go!
15 minutes prior to your session:
