The Quantitative Science Center supports development of quantitative and science skills in the Franklin & Marshall community.

Free Peer-Tutoring

Our first initiative is to improve learning outcomes by building problem solving skills and quantitative skills in F&M students through peer-to-peer help. To do this, we are launching 3 new programs in addition to supporting existing drop-in tutoring:

  1. Quantitative Fellows-- students work 1:1 with a Q fellow, to identify and surpass underlying quantitative problems for courses across the F&M curriculum.
  2. Individual Tutoring-- students work individually or in small groups with tutor to ask questions and receive help in any trouble areas.
  3. Supplemental Instruction-- peer group leaders attend class and run voluntary work-sessions where all students can improve study skills and content mastery.
  4. Drop-in Tutoring-- students can attend drop-in sessions in biology, chemistry, math, computer science, physics and astronomy.


The center is located in the Martin Science Library in the room behind the circulation desk. Students are welcome to come ask questions, get help with study skills, receive assistance on homework, and prep for exams.
