About the MLC


What is the MLC?

The Math Learning Center, or MLC for short, was created to help Cabrillo College math students develop the problem solving skills so they have the confidence and ability to solve math problems on their own.

Who can use the MLC?

The MLC is open to all Cabrillo College math students.

What are the MLC services?

We offer free drop-in tutoring for all math classes. Please note that waiting times may be longer for students in specialized and advanced classes such as statistics and finite math. Students can also check out a variety of math-related items such as textbooks, calculators, computer software and a wide selection of learning manipulatives. For a more detailed list, please see the Equipment & Other Aids link at the bottom of this page. Periodic review sessions for upcoming math exams are offered as well.

How do I use the MLC's services?

The first time you visit the MLC, you will need to register in our computer system. In order to do so, please talk to one of our assistants at the front desk. We will need your full name, student identification number and which math classes you are taking. Once you are registered, you will then be able to use the MLC's services by logging into the central computer everytime you visit the MLC. It is very important that you log in and log out everytime you visit the MLC÷we keep track of lab usage for funding and statistical purposes which aids us in improving our services.

Who do I talk to if I have questions about the MLC?

If you need to register in or database, check out materials, or if you have questions about logging into and out of our database, you can ask any of our many tutors for assistance. For questions about exam review sessions, make-up tests, and all other topics, please ask one of the MLC managers pictured below:
