Maths Mentors

We might just be able to FOIL your maths worries.

Are you looking for help to understand maths concepts? Maths Mentors is a pilot program designed to address maths confidence and offer you help when you need it. Maths Mentors are not tutors or teachers; they are Deakin students trained to ask questions and help you find the answers. Maths Mentors are supported by Maths and Numeracy Advisers and can refer you to some excellent resources.
