Mathematics Learning Center
The Math Center provides drop-in tutoring to undergraduate students enrolled in mathematics courses at Bentley.

The center is directed by a full-time faculty member but is staffed entirely by undergraduate Bentley students. During the academic year, the center is open most days and evenings, including weekends. During all hours of operation, students may get help with all 100-level math courses, and there are selected hours in which students may get help with math electives and GB213 (Business Statistics). Computer assistance as it relates to a mathematics course is also provided.

The Writing Center
Few students find it easy to do all the writing required of them in college. Forms of writing assigned in college often differ from those assigned in high-school, and college professors’ standards are often higher than those of high school teachers. The Writing Center offers one-on-one assistance with writing skills. It is staffed by a writing instructor and by peer tutors and offers guidance at all stages of the writing process, through tutoring, writing workshops, diagnostic testing and self-paced instruction.
