Science and Quantitative Reasoning Center
The Yale College Science and Quantitative Reasoning Center, located in 20 SSS, oversees programs for the enrichment of education in the sciences and quantitative disciplines. In addition to supporting faculty in the enhancement of teaching, the Center provides tutoring services and programs that enable students to participate in faculty-mentored research and engineering projects.
The Residential College Math and Science Tutoring program offers tutoring at scheduled times in the residential colleges and in the Science and Quantitative Reasoning Center. The tutors are advanced graduate students chosen for their teaching ability and their expertise in science and quantitative disciplines. Tutoring is available to all Yale College students on a walk-in basis, and is provided in all areas of math and science as well as in economics. Because tutors specialize in their own areas, students are encouraged to seek out the help they most need from tutors in any of the colleges or at the Science and Quantitative Reasoning Center. Areas of expertise and office hours for tutors are available at each residential college dean's office and on the Residential College Math and Science Tutoring Web site. For any further questions, contact the Math and Science Tutoring program, 203 432-1037.
To assist students who are experiencing difficulties in their course work and who require more personalized or longer-term support than is available through the Residential College Math and Science Tutoring program, the Science and Quantitative Reasoning Center also administers a Science and QR Tutoring program that provides individual tutoring to undergraduates in the full range of science and quantitative disciplines, including economics. Tutors are advanced undergraduate, graduate, or professional school students who have been certified by their academic departments or programs as qualified to provide academic support in one or more specific Yale College courses. Any student enrolled in Yale College who is experiencing academic difficulty in a course, as confirmed by the instructor, is eligible for up to ten hours of tutoring per course each semester, free of charge. Applications to request a tutor can be obtained from the offices of the residential college deans and at the Science and Quantitative Reasoning Center. More detailed information is available on the program's Web page or from the program coordinator at 203 432-7128.
