Our tutors also grade papers and enter grade data into our computerized
gradebooks for the GTA. They assist (tutor) in classrooms with
computer-based instruction. I have one guy that cleans classrooms and the
Math Center. If I had the money I would have a tutor in every math class.
Since we only do developmental math here it is good to have lots of help
very readily available and identifiable people are an asset.

We serve the 939 freshman and 962 sophomores in the General College of the
University of Minnesota. Our Math Center has about 100 visits a day.
