Mathematics Resource Center (MRC)

The resource center is a free drop-in tutoring service provided by the Department of Mathematics for Wayne State students enrolled in mathematics classes. We also assist incoming students as well as alumni that are trying to obtain placement in math courses at the calculus one level and below.

Important: The MRC will be closed during university closures. Make-up days for holidays will not be followed.


Math majors/minors are encouraged to apply for tutoring positions in the MRC if they have satisfied the following criteria:

  • Overall and mathematics GPA of 3.0
  • Completed MAT 2020 before applying

STEM majors in other areas may apply as well if mathematics is heavily utilized in their field of study, they satisfy the criteria above, and they have a strong background in statistics. However, preference will be given to those that either have a double major or minor in mathematics.
