What is the Maths Drop-in Session?  

Our drop-in gives you the opportunity to speak with a Maths Learning Centre (MLC) tutor about your maths queries and get individual help from a qualified lecturer.  

Drop-in operates on a first-come-first-served basis – so no booking needed.  

To allow tutors to see as many students as possible drop-in slots are kept to 15 minutes. 

In a drop-in we can

  • Support your understanding of mathematics and statistics.
  • Help build your maths confidence and reduce anxiety.
  • Help you to use statistical software packages e.g. Excel, SPSS, R.
  • Advise on further resources to support your learning.

However, we are unable to:

  • Do your assignment questions.
  • Advise on the subject of your research project or analyse your data.
  • Provide technical software support.
  • Proofread.

Make sure you can access Teams from your device and have it open ready to receive the call from the MLC tutor. Identify what it is you want to talk about with the tutor and have any course material and/or attempted question ready to share. These need to be in electronic form so you may need to scan your work, or take a picture and upload it ready for your turn. Be ready to provide any necessary context for the MLC lecturer to understand your question..
