The University of West Georgia College of Education is working to ensure that local elementary school students will have the math skills necessary to succeed. The College of Education Math Clinic offers help to students from ages 5-12 every Tuesday and Thursday. The clinic is open year-round from 4:30 - 5:15 p.m. in the Education Center Annex.
Two tutors are assigned to each student, providing individualized support and encouragement to those struggling with mathematical concepts and skills. Senior students majoring in early childhood education provide the tutoring service. This program is not only beneficial to the elementary student but to the tutors as well. It gives them a chance to employ the skills they have learned in the classroom and an opportunity to begin helping children.
The fee for attending the math clinic is $45 per semester. The university does offer a sliding fee scale based on family income. Students can register at any time during the semester as long as there is availability. To register or for more information, please visit the clinic website.
