Quantitative Support

Quantitative Support provides free mathematics and statistics support to undergraduate and graduate students at American University. Tutors will help students learn course concepts, develop study strategies, complete practice exercises, and prepare for exams. Quantitative Support comprises two core services: the Math & Stats Lab and Statistical Software Support.

Math & Stats Lab:

Don Myers Building, Room 103.

Students are welcome to visit the Lab anytime it is open. They do not need an appointment to receive tutoring at the Lab.

The Lab focuses on providing tutoring for the following courses:
