There are many useful resources within this site that can be used to help students review mathematical content even prior to enrolling in math courses.
Students will also find that this web page includes numerous online resources designed to supplement Germanna math classes. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with a tutor at any ACE location or visit the walkin Math Center at the Fredericksburg campus.
Individual appointments
If you prefer an individual appointment with a tutor, please visit or call one of the ACE offices or submit an online request for an appointment. Online math tutoring is also available 24/7 through Smarthinking.
Fredericksburg Math Center
Students who utilize the Math Center will be expected to abide by the Academic Honesty Policy as outlined within the student handbook, and the staff reserves the right to withhold assistance if it appears a student has requested help with a graded assignment or takehome test.
There are computers available for students to work independently on math assignments, and staff members are available to answer questions during the specific walkin hours listed below.
