Mission Statement

The mission of Tutoring Services of the Mathematics Department is to assist Lamar University’s undergraduate students in developing content-appropriate study strategies and content knowledge for all first- and second-year mathematics courses, through Calculus II. Through drop-in tutoring staffed by undergraduate and graduate students who are trained in specific math-course content, we guide undergraduate students at Lamar University to become confident mathematics students who are independent, self-regulated learners.

Values

Accountability – Each individual engaged in student support is responsible for their assignments and will do their job to the best of their abilities.

Respect - We respect students, instructors, and the people around us. We value the abilities of all students, recognizing that we all come from different mathematical backgrounds.

Support - We provide an open, accessible, and supportive learning environment for students.

Communication - We communicate effectively with students and co-workers, and we help students learn to communicate mathematics effectively.

Mastery - We continue to learn and work toward content mastery and to improve our student support skills.

Excellence - We recognize that learning mathematics is hard work, but that persistence pays dividends. There are no shortcuts.

Growth Mindset - We reject the notion that some people are just “not good at math.”
