For a list of subjects tutored in Summer 2023 please click here (coming soon!).
Math TAs are also available to help you with any Math-related queries! Click here for their schedule.
The OSL works on an in person drop-in tutoring basis. We are located on the first
floor of Skeen Library. The list of subjects tutored in each semester is displayed
on the big tv screen located in the OSL area.
If necessary, NMT students can also get tutoring help online (upon request). The OSL
is using Discord as a space for quick questions and community. To get started, you
need to gain access to the OSL Discord server.
Follow the instructions below to access the OSL Discord server:
Make a Discordaccount, if you don't already have one.
Select the invitation link that will be included in the form confirmation email.
Follow the Discord tutorial.
NOTE: Due to the difficult nature of online tutoring, we ask that students please
utilize in person tutoring if possible. Please email us with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tutoring in Torres
In an effort to make tutoring available to as many students as possible, the OSL and
Residential Life launched the Tutoring in Torres project in the Fall 2022. We offer
help with Math and Physics as well as other subjects.
There is no tutoring in Torres offered in the summer, so please come back in Fall 2023!
Where: Torres Hall, Multi-Purpose Room
Tutorial Services: Online and in-person
The OSL primarily conducts in-person drop-in tutoring. We will resume online-only
tutoring in the event of pandemic-related shut-downs. Special distance tutoring is
available upon request; please contact email@example.com.
The OSL uses Discord for an online community space. You can talk with students, ask
tutors and staff quick questions, and stay up-to-date with OSL announcements.
Student Online and In-person Etiquette and Responsibilities:
Be respectful of all participants in public and private sessions.
Make sure you have a steady internet connection and all systems (microphone, camera
etc.) are working properly before you request online tutoring. If these systems are
not working let the tutor/TA know so that they can adjust their method of communication
Try to focus on the session; avoid distractions to make the most of your and the tutors
Communicate with the tutors and TAs, let them know if the method they are using isn't
working for you.
The OSL does not do test corrections. However, the OSL will help with quizz and test
Do not share the Discord invitation link. The Discord Invitation Form is required for entry to our server. You will only have to do this once.
Contact the OSL at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about online and in-person tutoring, we're here to help!
The SRS includes three separate events where undergraduate and graduate students may
participate. The goal of the SRS is to provide students with a platform to present
and discuss their research with a general audience.
Math & Physics Extravaganza
Math & Physics Extravaganza is a massive review session run by the OSL which helps
students prepare for their final exams. The event is typically held during the final
week of classes and features various sessions taught by professors and instructors.
Refreshments are also provided.
Giving to the OSL
Student success is the priority for the Office for Student Learning.
The two main programs offered through this office are
Free peer tutoring
Summer Math Success Scholarship
We greatly appreciate your support in growing the reach of these two programs.
Successful students take advantage of the free peer tutoring program at New Mexico
Tech. Tutoring is offered across disciplines and at all levels. Peer tutors are special
individuals who care about others’ success, and know how to present material in different
ways for different learning styles.
Degrees at New Mexico Tech start with Calculus, but many incoming students do not
have an opportunity to prepare for Calculus before arriving at NMT. The Summer Math
Scholarship (SMS) enables incoming new students to take a New Mexico Tech distance
education Pre-Calculus Algebra or Trigonometry class the summer before they start
as full-time NMT undergraduates.
This course advances their understanding of math and their math placement, familiarizes
them with NMT math faculty, and introduces them to some of their incoming classmates.
Your contribution to either of these two funds will have an immediate and long-lasting
impact on student outcomes now and in the future.
The Office for Student Learning strives to be the center for academic student support
programs and services that promote student engagement, development and self-efficacy.
The Office for Student Learning is a nexus for student academic support initiatives
and seeks to work with curricular and co-curricular programs to foster opportunities
for student learning. The OSL provides a space and framework to develop community,
foster collaboration, and pilot new ideas. This work is accomplished through a progressive
and consistent assessment of student learning outcomes to ensure our work contributes
to the advancement of our students and institution.
Student development and self-efficacy: By offering resources and guidance that will allow students to build productive
habits so that they may succeed on their own.
Student engagement: Through the development of communities where students contribute to one another's
educational growth and success.
Collaboration: By strategically targeting beneficial collaborations with students, staff, and faculty
within the division of Academic Affairs, across NMT, and with community partners.
Diversity & Inclusion: By ensuring that our work considers the experience and needs of all who utilize
our services, but especially those who are often marginalized in higher education.
Innovation: By creating and environment where new programming and ideas for advancing student
success are welcomed and can be designed, developed, and implemented.
Data-informed decision making: By collecting information on the programs and services offered through our department
so that we can make informed improvements that meet the needs of our students where
they are today.
Access: By understanding our students, we will identify all barriers, real or perceived,
and work to remove them, ensuring all have access and opportunity to succeed.
