Mathematics and Statistics Support

As of Sunday March 15, all in person sessions are suspended;  however, many of our supports will continue in an online environment!

Please refer to our "Math & Stats Learning Support - Waterloo" and "Math & Stats Learning Support - Brantford" pages on MyLearningSpace for updates and details as to how to connect with us remotely.

If you do not see the relevant MaSt support page in your list of courses on MyLS, use the Advanced Search link and then change the Semester option box to "None" and click on the Search/microscope icon. If you still don't see the MaSt support page listed, then you can self-register for it: go back to your home page in MyLS and you should see a link for "Self Registration"; click this and then find "Math & Stats Learning Support - [Waterloo/Brantford]" to enroll.


Mathematics and Statistics Learning Support (MaSt) is part of the Student Success team of academic support services, that has been created to aid in your transition from secondary to university-level mathematics.

Content is presented in various modes, both online and in classroom settings.

Services are provided not only for mathematics and statistics courses, but also for courses with a quantitative component from other academic departments.

The programming the centre provides can be grouped into two categories:

  • Diagnostic and review services are designed to refresh your knowledge in fundamental math skills, prerequisite to your university course(s).
  • Course support includes, for example, weekly homework sessions, drop-in help, mock tests and exam reviews, as forms of supplemental instruction to particular courses.


Looking for a Tutor? Want to Be a Tutor?

While Math & Stats Learning Support does not get involved in matching students looking for a personal math tutor with students who are willing to provide one-on-one tutoring, we have created bulletin board space on the Waterloo campus, where advertisements can be posted. Feel free to post flyers on our Tutoring Wall, inside LH1018.
While Math & Stats Learning Support is not directly involved, Writing and Study Skills Services operates a tutor referral service.
