Science, math students at Wayland offering  tutoring assistance

PLAINVIEW – Science and math students at Wayland Baptist University will offer free tutoring sessions for junior high and high school students on four upcoming Saturday afternoons, the first slated Oct. 28 from 1-4 p.m.

              The sessions will provide one-on-one help for students in any math or science course, whether help is needed in completing homework or learning skills for testing or projects.

              Many of the Wayland students providing tutoring will be members of Pi Sigma Sigma, a fraternity of math and science students.

              “Pi Sigma Sigma is a service organization dedicated to raising interest in math and science,” said Jerod Clopton, a senior math major from O’Donnell and president of the organization. “This is our first time to do tutoring outside of the campus.”

              Clopton said the organization originally planned the tutoring sessions as a fundraiser, but opted instead to make it a free service to the community. Student tutors will be approved by professors, he noted.

              The tutoring sessions will be held in Moody Science Building on the Wayland campus. Additional sessions are planned from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4, Nov. 18 and Dec. 2.
