Located in the Margaret A. Cargill building, the Physics Tutoring Lab is open for support with all levels of physics. Berea’s physics tutors should be able to help with most mathematical and physics questions that arise from study in the introductory physics courses at Berea College.
Students are strongly encouraged to make use of the help available in the Lab, as well as in their instructor’s office hours. Best results are obtained trying to solve problems before asking for help, so in either place, students should be prepared to show what they have already tried. Topics in many courses in the sciences build throughout the course, so students should be sure to do their best to keep up with the class, so as to not get behind and possibly forever lost. Remember, no question to which one does not know the answer is ever “dumb” unless it goes unanswered because it remained unasked.
During the regular term, the physics tutoring hours are Monday through Thursday 7:00 to 9:00 P.M., except on evenings of Berea College convocations, at which time the tutoring sessions run from 7:00 to 8:00 P.M. On Sunday, the tutoring session is held from 3:00 to 5:00 P.M.
