How to use Maths-Aid

Maths-Aid is run primarily as a drop-in service, so no appointment is necessary – call in to the Robinson Library during our opening times and one of our experienced, friendly tutors will be happy to assist you. Remember to bring with you any relevant notes, as we won’t be able to help you if we cannot see the problem!

Priority is given to first year students, however we welcome students at any stage of their studies and from any discipline.

We have limited computing facilities, so can offer some help with software related problems but unfortunately nothing extensive. We also cannot help with any assessed work, but we can help with any similar questions or examples and offer appropriate advice.

We have ongoing strategies for helping students with dyslexia or discalculia, and so we encourage you to drop by.

Postgraduate students

Due to the nature of assistance often required by postgraduate students, we regret that .Maths-Aid may not be able to help. See here for further details.

Structured programmes

Some students may require a structured programme of assistance with a particular topic. In such cases we are able to offer an appointment-based approach. This allows us to ensure that students receive continuity in their studies and are paired with the most appropriately skilled tutor.


The Staff Contacts section of the site gives the contact details of our tutors and their specialist knowledge. Students can see any member of our staff, but may find it helpful to consult this information if the help they require is particularly specialised.
