About the service

Maths-Aid is a drop-in service so no appointment is necessary – just turn up during our opening hours. If a tutor is free then you you will be seen straight away. Our tutors will offer explanations and advice and will try to answer any questions you may have.

A tutor may not always be available straight away, especially during busy periods. You may be asked to wait or return later and we appreciate your patience in this. In order to reduce waiting times during busy periods, we will limit sessions to 20-30 minutes. You are more than welcome to come back later for more help and advice if you need more time.

The service is available to undergraduate students outside of the School of Maths and Statistics and also to taught postgraduate students. We cannot help research postgraduates.

Please bring any relevant lecture notes with you so that we can provide the best help possible.

We cannot do assessed work of any type so please do not ask us to.

However, we may still be able to provide help by working through a similar example.
