The Mathematics Center began life in early 2002 as a joint project between the Math Department Tutoring Program and the Math Enrichment through Technology Program (MEnTe). The Tutoring Program provided energetic and knowledgeable peer tutors for East Los Angeles College math students. The Math Center provided a comprehensive learning facility with smart classrooms, a tutoring area, an open computer lab, and technical support staff.
The Math Center Director is Gabriel Castro, Tutoring Lab Coordinator is Eduardo Hidalgo and Stephen Huang. A peer tutoring program format is used to assist East Los Angeles College students in the successful completion of their math studies. Tutors are available Monday through Saturday to accommodate all students who take classes at East Los Angeles College. Students can use the tutoring facilities without an appointment.
This exemplary tutoring program is extremely beneficial for East Los Angeles College students who take advantage of it. Students who receive tutoring are more successful than their counterparts who do not.
All currently registered East Los Angeles College students can use the Mathematics Center. No appointment is needed. Just walk in, log in, and start studying!
Furthermore, the Math Tutoring Center is open to students who want to use the computers for writing papers, performing Internet research, completing online homework and printing.
