When overwhelming school work and incomprehensible formulas are pulling you down, the “Mega” student-help classes are there to perform the rescue.

In Lafayette Hall room B120, the Academic Support Center offers a quiet space where students can meet with helpful instructors and tackle their most difficult subjects together.

The support center offers tutor assistance in a variety of subjects such as: mathematics, english, and science. Each subject is known as Mega-Math, Mega-Papers and Mega-Chem sessions respectively, and has been provided by the support center for the past six years.

These Mega sessions are designed to give students a stress-free environment where they can either work in groups with students or one on one with a tutor. Students can sit with their classmates to do homework, revisit classwork, review new formulas or study material, and work on long term assignments.

The Academic Support Center tutors are experienced in their diverse subjects and can help with any level of class, whether it is beginner’s level courses or high honors.

This assistance is available to all students and can be helpful regardless of your major.  Even those not taking mathematics courses may find help for other classes during a Mega-Math session.

Kevin Fontan, a tutor at the Academic Support Center, says, “We also have tutors who help with math in other courses, like physics or accounting.” No matter the major, it seems the Mega sessions can be useful to any student.

These sessions are given generous time slots, with Mega-Math running from 9:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, and from 9:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Fridays.  Mega-Chem operates on a separate day, running from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. every Thursday.  Mega-Papers is held on Tuesdays, from 6:00 p.m to 7:00 p.m.

With no appointment required, the Mega sessions provide an open work room, where students can come and go as needed.  With a wide array of time frames available, students can always find time in their schedules to stop by for assistance.
