MLC’s goal is to bring free, fun and friendly math help to the students at MSU. Surveys show that students do significantly better if they regularly keep up with their homework and seek help early. MLC tutors do not do homework for you. Instead, they help you understand concepts and put you on the right track quickly to help you succeed when you are in class, on your own. MLC also operates in the neighborhoods.
