The Math & Science Skills Center is a unique resource which provides assistance in all levels of Rhodes State Mathematics and Science Courses to our students at NO COST. The Skills Center, staffed by a Coordinator, Professional and Peer Tutors who provide the basis for the tutoring services. Each time students come to the Skills Center for assistance, they must complete the following steps to receive tutoring services:
Step One: Log in their name using student ID card on any of the 2 computers next to the entrance.
Step Two: If the student signs in as SELF STUDY then he/she does not need our help but wants to do independent work. Else the next available peer tutor or I will welcome him/her and assist with whatever he/she needs help with.
Students must log out on the Skills Center computer when leaving. This helps the MSSC monitor and improve its services. We look forward to your visits.
