Quantitative Reasoning Tutors

Quantitative Reasoning Tutors (Q-Tutors and Learning Assistants) are available to help their fellow students through one-on-one meetings.

Drop-In Tutors:

Tutors are available (drop-in or by appointment) at the Baldwin Center for Learning and Teaching, H-L Library 112, from 7-10PM on Sunday-Thursday evenings to help with Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Economics and Statistics. Current schedule (Spring 2022). There is also an online option. If the choice is made to meet with a Q-Tutor virtually, at the time of the appointment, students go back into BCLT Scheduling to enter the online meeting space where they will meet with the Q-Tutor. 

The QR program can also provide more personalized individual tutoring, in coordination with the course department, for students in quantitative courses. Contact Eric Gaze, Director, at egaze@bowdoin.edu for more information.

Individual Tutoring and Additional Help:

The Quantitative Reasoning Program works with the faculty responsible for various quantitative courses. In many cases, a Learning Assistant is assigned to the course. The Learning Assistant leads weekly study group sessions and exam review sessions. The Learning Assistant provides studying strategies and may occasionally do some individual tutoring. For some courses, workshop sessions on quantitative techniques are available preceding their use in the class. Drop-in tutoring is available for various courses, and a schedule of courses, tutors and support is published by the third week of each semester. Students may also make specific requests for assistance directly to the Quantitative Reasoning Program Director, Eric Gaze. The responses to such requests will depend upon the particular circumstances, but could include the formation of a new study group, the addition of a workshop and/or the assignment of an individual tutor.
