The Math Center is a very popular place and continues to set new records for usage. It is a place for free one-on-one tutoring in math. It is also a place to do your math homework by yourself or in a study group with others in the center. Here are profiles of two of the tutors. Profiles of some of the other math tutors can be found in previous issues of this newsletter.
Rebekah Herrman is a junior Math and Physics double major who graduated from St. Benedict at Auburndale High School. She has been a tutor in the Math Center since her freshman year. She has helped many students and has been a real asset to the tutoring program. Rebekah is the president of the CBU Student Chapter of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and is on the Honors Program Board of Directors. She also is a resident assistant in Rozier Hall and is involved in campus ministry and the Society of Physics Students (SPS).
Alex Grover, a senior Mechanical Engineering major, has been working in the Math Center since the beginning of the semester. Though his involvement in math tutoring has been brief, he is no stranger to the program. Over his last four years he has taken many math courses, both fundamental and higher level. He has enjoyed passing on some of what he has learned to other students. Aside from tutoring, he has been active in engineering projects on campus as well as internships.
