Math Advocacy Center
The primary purpose of the Math Advocacy Center (MAC) lab is for students to receive one-on-one tutoring for any developmental math course and any college algebra course offered at Northwest Vista College.
In these thirty (30) minute sessions, our goal is the help students understand the basic concepts of the topics needed for them to complete their assignment. While our tutors will do as much as possible to help the student succeed, the tutors will not complete an assignment for the student.
Typically, students are limited to five (5) tutoring sessions for a given math course. For students taking a flex course, the student can receive five (5) sessions for each course for a possible total of ten (10) visits.
This service is freely available for Northwest Vista College students. Students can either setup an appointment for a future visit or visit the lab in Juniper Hall, Room 308 (JH 308) have the next available tutor assist them.
Math Advising and Counseling
The Math Advocacy Center is the home base of the Advocate for the Mathematics Department. The Math Advocate’s role is to offer the following:
- advice to students who are wondering about the next course they should be taking
- overrides for students interested in a special sequence of courses
- counseling for students who may consider dropping a course.
To drop a course in any other discipline please contact that Academic Area/Department or Enrollment Services.
Math Course Testing Services
Under special circumstances, math instructors can may make arrangements for students to complete an exam or quiz in the Math Advocacy Center.
Students are expected to bring their Alamo Colleges District ID in order to receive an exam or quiz.
