Resources for Columbia students
In addition to office hours and the help rooms, there is tutoring available from the individual schools:
- Columbia College and SEAS students: Tutoring is available through the Academic Success Programs.
- Barnard students: Small group peer tutoring is available from the
Academic Fellows program.
- General Studies students: One-on-one, small group, and drop-in tutoring is available via the Academic Resource Center.
Tutoring is most likely to be available for lower-level mathematics courses (pre-calculus and calculus 1, 2 and 3).
Private Tutoring by Columbia Mathematics Graduate Students
Many mathematics graduate students offer tutoring services on a private, one-on-one basis. They tend to have significant tutoring experiences, with tutees ranging from high school students to undergraduate students, to graduate students in other disciplines. The hourly fees vary from student to student, depending on the number of hours needed and the topics to be covered.
To contact the graduate students who offer such tutoring services, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to find an appropriate tutor, please include in your email a description of your situation, topics to be covered, hours per week, days available, etc. Typically you will receive a response within a few days. However, note that if no graduate students can meet your criteria, or are not accepting new tutees, you may not receive a response.
Columbia Mathematics department graduate students who wish to be contacted through this mailing list should contact Peter Woit to have their names added to the list.
This web page is set up as a service to the graduate students, who offer their services as private individuals. The Department of Mathematics does not officially offer tutoring services and does not take part in negotiations or disputes related to tutoring. The Department of Mathematics and Columbia University bear no responsibility for the tutoring services, their content, or outcome.
For another option, one with no connection whatsoever to the Mathematics Department, there’s the Columbia University Tutoring and Translating Agency.Print this page
