Q&SC tutoring moves online...

 

As F&M's classes move online, our tutoring has too!  

  • Drop-in tutoring. Drop-in tutoring is happening through videoconferencing, using break-out rooms.  Details may vary slightly between departments. Drop-in schedules remain largely unchanged. 
  • QuEST sessions.  Most QuEST sessions are running through videoconferencing. Again, details may vary between courses.
  • Individual tutoring: Tutors and tutees have some flexibility in establishing their online tutoring mechanism, usually through videoconferencing. Students can continue to make individual appointments now and into the future through our Scheduler software. 
    • Tutees can upload problems to the appointment so tutors can prepare in advance.
    • Much of our tutoring will take place right there, through online tutoring links. 

This page, the landing page of the Scheduler software and an informational student-facing Canvas Help resource will continue to have updated information.

About the Quantitative and Science Center (Q&SC) 

Who We Are and What We Do

The College established the Q&SC in 2014 to help F&M students build problem solving and quantitative skills through peer-to-peer help.  With a team of nearly 50 peer tutors, the Q&SC provides many opportunities for students seeking additional resources to help master course content and enhance study skills.

How To Use the Q&SC

Students can access the Q&SC Schedule from their Academics page on Inside F&M.  The Q&SC Scheduler shows which courses are supported with tutoring and is a handy way to check the schedule and location of Drop-in and QuEST Sessions, as well as make a weekly tutoring or consultation appointment.
