Normandle Math Center
Agency Description: The Normandale Julie Guelich Math Center is a classroom for pre-college level math students. All students in the Julie Guelich Math Center are registered for Math 601, 602, or 603. The goal is to prepare them for college level math.
- Primary duties are tutoring students working on ALEKS (web-based learning system) at the pre-algebra, elementary and intermediate algebra level. Students are working on computers here, so tutors are actively helping students at the student's workstation (i.e. up walking around, and not sitting at a desk). On assessment days, tutors help with proctoring. Tutors also assist faculty and lab assistants with miscellaneous tasks.
- A strong math background is necessary, the minimum qualification is an A or B in College Algebra. Aside from the math background, we are looking for students with good communication skills and are friendly, courteous, and professional. A faculty recommendation is required, verifying that the student has qualities that would make a good tutor.
- Volunteering 2 hours per week, depending on the start date is probably necessary to get the 15 hours needed. We would prefer that once a tutor starts he/she works the same hours (per week) through the last week of class. Students get used to a certain tutor and then depend on that person being there.
- We have one student tutor per hour; the unstaffed hours will be available later. (First or second week of the semester?)
How to Apply: There is a paper application in the Julie Guelich Math Center, C 3045, for students that want to be volunteer tutors in the Math Center. If you have questions, contact Kyle Hanneman 952-358-9224 Kyle.Hanneman@normandale.edu
