Math Resource Center

The Mathematics Resource Center (MRC) provides free math tutoring to all UP students so that they can become better mathematical thinkers and apply their increasing math knowledge and more effectively. Located in its own dedicated space within the Learning Commons in Buckley Center 163, the MRC is open Sundays through Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters, and on an appointment basis during the summer terms.

Math tutors can help with statistics, pre-calculus, business calculus, finite mathematics, calculus I and II, vector calculus, differential equations, discrete structures, linear algebra, and applied statistics. No appointment is necessary, just drop in whenever you have a question. The MRC is also a good place to meet with fellow students to work on homework assignments and projects.

Giselle Marston

"Hi! My name is Giselle Marston, and I am a junior double majoring in math and computer science. In my free time, I like staying active by running, hiking, and playing basketball with friends. I also enjoy trying new foods and watching YouTube videos and TV shows. I began loving math at a young age, and I am so excited to help you with it! Do not be afraid to ask questions! I promise I won’t bite!"

Anthony Pepe

"Hey, my name is Anthony Pepe and I am a junior, majoring in mechanical engineering. I'm interested in the biomechanical field and have already done research into Parkinson's Disease through UP. In addition to a full workload as an engineer, I enjoy taking down time to catch up on shows (I'm watching Mr. Robot at the moment), play video games, or toss a ball or Frisbee around with my roommates. I got into engineering because of my excitement for math and problem solving. I hope to share that excitement and knowledge with you."
