Come to the RHMLC!

We strongly suggest you come to the Red Hawk Center 2 times a week. There, you can have your questions answered while you work (we call this on-demand tutoring) and, if needed, individual tutoring.

Because computer terminals at the Center are limited, and there are ongoing classes, you will need to reserve a terminal ahead of time. Fill out the Computer Reservation Form to secure your seat. Please check in at the front desk when you arrive. 

In addition to working in the lab and taking advantage of on-demand tutoring, we offer individual tutoring at the Red Hawk Math Learning Center. Sign up for Tutoring by Appointment. Please check in at the front desk when you arrive.
