Even Laura Lynch will admit math is not the easiest subject to master and that means a lot coming from the department chair and assistant professor of mathematics at College of Coastal Georgia.

"It is a hard topic for a lot of people, I know that," Lynch said.

But have no fear — Lynch and her team of tutors are here to help.

Lynch, along with four paid tutors and several volunteers from the college, will be offering math tutoring courses this semester. Stretching from February to May, the courses will be open to the entire community and held on the first and third Saturday mornings of the month.

"We're here for everyone — high schoolers, middle schoolers, elementary schoolers and even for college students," Lynch said.

Whether a student is studying to take the ACT or SAT exams to enter college or is currently a college student needing extra help or a young pupil wanting advanced lessons on certain math subjects, all are welcome, she said.

"We never turn anyone away," Lynch said.

The tutoring course is based on a pilot project launched last October that was the brainchild of Lynch and the president of the college math and engineering club, Erina Bista.

With the goal of beginning a service learning project, the duo reached out to the two area high schools, Glynn Academy and Brunswick High, to recruit students who needed extra assistance.

Lynch discovered that algebra was the subject students struggle with the most, she said.

"We use math every day, even if we don't realize it," Lynch said.

"We really don't know who or how many people will come out to get help, but the more the merrier."

Students being tutored are asked to enter the campus from the Altama Avenue access point across from Brunswick High School.

The sessions will be held on the second floor of the Correll Teacher Education Building.
