Fall 2021 Announcement

The Science and Math Learning Center will open for the Fall 2021 semester on Wednesday, September 1st for assistance in chemistry, math, physics, and statistics!  We plan to offer both in-person and online modes of support this year.  

In Person:

The SMLC is located on the first floor of the Student Success Center.  We will be open for drop-in tutoring in person on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10am to 6pm.  Masks are required in the SMLC space!  Note: due to staffing constraints, there may be windows between 10am and 6pm when a tutor in a specific subject is not available*. 

*Check our schedules page for the most up-to-date edition of our in-person schedule.  

No appointments needed!  For more on how our in-person services work, see What to Expect When Visiting the SMLC!


Online: 

The SMLC offers a synchronous drop-in tutoring service where you can consult with a tutor online through WebEx.  No appointments needed!

See the instructions below or for a step-by-step guide with images on how to access synchronous tutoring, click here!

  • Navigate to the "Tutoring Schedules" section on the menu
  • Click the subject you need help with
  • Log in with your JMU e-id and password
