Math Plaza

The UTC Math Plaza offers free walk-in math help for students taking the following MATH courses: 1010, 1130, 1710, 1720, 1730, 1830, 1950, and 2100. Although we do not have tutors regularly available for higher level math courses, we will always make an effort to answer the questions of any UTC student who comes to us for help.

If you feel you need to work with a tutor on a one-on-one basis you can contact the Center for College and Student Success regarding their tutoring services. The center is located in the library in room 335 and their phone number is 423-425-2653.

How to get the most from your Plaza visits

  1. Try some problems first. Make sure you have read your class notes and attempted some homework problems before coming to the Plaza for help.
  2. Come prepared. Make sure you bring all course materials to the Plaza when you come for help. This includes all class notes, assignments, AND your textbook.
  3. Come with specific questions or topics in mind. You will have better results if you can say, “I need help with this problem. Here is what I did, but I keep getting an incorrect answer.” or “Here are my notes from class. I don’t understand how my professor got from this step to that step.”
  4. Come in more than 48 hours before your test. The Math Plaza gets very busy before tests, and you will have to wait much longer to get help.
  5. Come in on a regular basis. A tutor cannot teach you everything your professor covered in the previous 4 weeks of class in one hour.

And don’t forget to attend class regularly. Remember, the Math Plaza serves as an adjunct to math courses and is not a replacement for the material presented by your instructors. It is important that you also attend lectures and discussions regularly!
