Math and Science Help (MASH) Program
MASH review sessions are offered for math, science, and computer science courses that are critical for first year success. The MASH program has helped WPI students make the transition between high school learning patterns and the necessary habits and skills needed for college work.
In MASH sessions, you will meet with other students who are taking the same course. You can discuss any difficulties you are having understanding the material or a specific problem, talk about the class, compare notes, discuss assignments and lectures, as well as ask questions and improve your study skills. A MASH leader who has taken the course before and understands what you are experiencing guides each session.
During the first week of the term, your MASH Leader will introduce themselves to the class and announce when and where the MASH sessions will be held. You are encouraged to attend as many sessions during the term as you wish. Each session will be different as new material will have been covered and new questions posed. Bring your class material (texts, notes, and assignments) and your questions.

Tutoring sessions, unlike MASH sessions, allows students to work one-on-one with a tutor rather than in a group. Tutors are able to offer assistance in a wide range of courses, and do not concentrate on just one course.
Group tutoring gives students the opportunity to work together in a smaller group, alongside a tutor, to get specific course help. Courses are selected for group tutoring based on tutoring demand. Up to 5 students may sign up per time slot for selected courses.
