The Math & Science Center
Our professional and peer tutors have all earned a badge from Purdue University's Tutor Essentials Training. Schedule an appointment and choose to meet either on line (via videoconference) or in person. You must use your CMCC email to schedule tutoring. In person walk-ins are welcome, but scheduling in advance is a good idea, as tutors are sometimes in high demand. Please schedule online Tutoring 24 hours in advance. Tutors may have other time that they are available; feel free to ask them. Questions? email Diane Hamel, Math Science Tutor Coordinator MathScienceCenter@cmcc.edu or:
Submitting a paper through the On-Line Writing Center in Brightspace
To access this resource, you must get the On-line Writing Center listed in your courses. It’s simple.
Go to the Discover tab at the top of your Brightspace homepage.
Search for On-Line Writing Center.
Hit “enroll”. (Now the On-Line Writing Center will always be available in your list of courses.)
Click on the On-Line Writing Center window and click on the "Assignments" tab. in the Assignments list click on the assignment for the current semester (example: On-line Writing Center Submissions--Fall 2021). After you submit your paper the tutors are notified that your paper has been uploaded and will generally respond within 24-48 hours with suggestions and comments. Because many students submit their writing the last week of the term, no papers will be accepted within 3 days of your final assignment.

Helpful tips: If you log in to the CMCC website at 6:30 on a Sunday and want to meet me at that exact same time, you still need to make an appointment. Just click the link, "Get Writing Tutoring" and schedule an appointment for 6:30. If no-one is already scheduled for that time, you will be granted that appointment and all you need to do is wait five seconds for the appointment link to arrive in your email. If someone already has that time slot for an appointment, make an appointment for the next available half-hour block at 7:00 or 7:30 that same evening. You can also simply make an appointment one day, or one week, or one month ahead of time to ensure you reserve the time slot you want.
The Writing Center is a free resource for getting helpful feedback on writing assignments. Studies show that just one extra hour of revision will improve a paper by one full letter grade (from "B" to an "A"). Drop in during WC operating hours or make an appointment to reserve your time.

John is a long time faculty member at CMCC. He has helped countless students with their writing in the writing center and is looking forward to seeing students again this semester. Some of the classes he's taught are College Writing, Comparative Religions, Communications, and other Humanities courses.
I began my teaching part time while on active duty with the Army. I enjoyed it so much I have continued through my civilian career and into semi-retirement. I've recently begun tutoring as well, and find it particularly satisfying. The one-on-one relationship allows for a pace of instruction that can be tailored to an individual student rather than an entire class.
A graduate of UMaine Farmington(BA, English) and Wichita State University(MFA, Creative Writing) Dennis has been teaching all forms of writing for over twenty years: college writing, remedial writing, technical writing, business and professional writing, and creative writing. He believes that "good writing is mastering the art of rewriting."
My name is Abdullahi Daud, but you can call me Haji. I was born and raised in Kenya, and graduated from Lewiston High School, and then CMCC where I played soccer. I am a student at the University of Maine at Augusta majoring in Biology. When I graduate in 2022 I'm going to study Dentistry. I enjoy tutoring and meeting new people. In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer and I play for a local team.
Matt Grinder is a PhD Candidate at Union Institute and University where he studies literature and culture with an emphasis on Native American Literature. He is an English and Philosophy adjunct faculty member at CMCC. He is enjoying working with students on Fridays in the Writing Center.
I graduated from UMA with a BA in English. Prior to UMA, I was a student here at CMCC and now I am back teaching and working in the Learning & Advising Center. Those students who come in scared to write and have no idea how to even get started are some of my favorite students because they leave with confidence and a good start on an otherwise overwhelming assignment.

MA Creative Non-Fiction Writing, BA English, minor in writing, Associates in Media Studies. Sees CMCC students as extended family and is dedicated to the success of every student and the mission of the college.
I have taught math from basic to AP Calculus for 28 years. I enjoy tutoring as I get to take into account the differences in learning styles and levels of proficiency of each student. There is no better sound for a teacher than when they hear a student say proudly “Oh, now I understand!”
I enjoy family, playing my guitar and writing songs, and hiking in the White Mountains.
Alessia Santilli is an instructor here at CMCC and she also tutors in the Math & Science Center. Alessia loves tutoring and helping students. She teaches biology and anything that comes with it, such as microbiology, macrobiology and anatomy.
I am a Computer Science student. And next year I will be hoping to transfer to four year university to follow that path line. I enjoy helping others with what I can, be it math, science, presentations or other subjects that I know I can at least advise people on. Outside of the classroom I enjoy reading, video games, and cooking as hobbies.
Michele graduated from UCSD with a BS in Biology and is currently taking classes at CMCC to refresh her knowledge and apply to medical school.
