One of our most beneficial academic services is the MAC Tutoring Program, a collaboration with the Center for Academic Excellence. The trained tutors are offered free of charge to Truman students who need assistance in any subject. Once a Tutor Request Form is completed online, the MAC and Success Center will assign tutors based on need and availability. One-on-one tutoring is offered in the following courses:
Biology: 100, 107, 108, 200 (Cell Biology), 300 (Genetics), 315 (Physiology)
Chemistry: 121 (Chem Principles II), 330 (Organic Chem)
Math: College Algebra, Elementary Functions, Trigonometry, Calculus I, II, & III
Basic Accounting and Economics
And other subjects upon request
Tutoring is located in the following buildings at the designated times below.
Center for Academic Excellence, 112 Kirk Building
Walk In and Appointment: Monday through Friday 9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.

Please note, while personal attention is guaranteed, students are still expected to maintain an open dialogue with their professors. Tutoring is no substitute for a close working relationship with Truman faculty. While the MAC and Center for Academic Excellence make their best efforts to academically support students, we encourage them to make the most of the tutoring experience by keeping professors informed of their progress. Requests for tutoring are processed and responded to in the order in which they are received. The MAC and Center for Academic Excellence do their best to match requests with an appropriate tutor in a quick, timely manner; however, at times we can be restricted by circumstances beyond our control (i.e. the academic calendar, tutor availability, finances, etc.). It is best to request tutoring early in the semester and meet continually with an assigned tutor throughout the semester.
"Students find it helpful when math problems are explained from different perspectives. We have eleven tutors selected from a broad range of majors, all of whom have had different math experiences from virtually all math professors at Truman State University. These tutors often offer different strategies for interpreting and solving problems."
