Tutors are available to work one-to-one or with groups – there is no cost and all a student has to do is make a booking online
A survey of students who have used the Computing & Maths Learning Centre at WIT’s main campus has found that 85% of those who used the centre’s resources improved their confidence and grade, and 95% said attending the Centre improved their knowledge,
The Computing & Maths Learning Centre offers both online and in-person support at its dedicated room on the main campus in Waterford.
Computing and Mathematics Learning Centre Coordinator Siobhan Roche says the survey results demonstrate how much students benefit when they ask for help and that she would like to see even more students availing of the free maths and computing supports. To encourage students to get in touch, the Computing and Mathematics Learning Centre has put together this video: https://youtu.be/33hbxhf6RTA
“Maths features in nearly every single course so our supports are used by a wide range of students across different backgrounds, ages, and areas of study. The students we help include mature students and adult learners who may have not studied maths for decades to those for whom maths was not a strong point in secondary school. We also see students who have a good grasp of maths and need a confidence boost to get through maths modules, assignments and assessments at third level,” Roche adds.
She explains tutors are available to work one-to-one or with groups – there is no cost and all a student has to do is make a booking via the website.
Her advice is: “While it is never too late to avail of the free supports, don’t leave it till the night before your exam. Maths is a set of building blocks, and if you feel you’re on shaky ground, we can help you build a strong foundation earlier in the semester. We encourage our students to get the help from us as soon as they run into issues. For many of our students the main benefit is having someone additional to their lecturer, a different voice, who can go step-by-step through class notes and assignment instructions or samples to help identify where they need extra support. For some students one session is enough, and for others a few sessions will help them. We are also delighted to be able to work with students throughout the semester, sometimes a few times a week.”
