More Than Just a Place for Tutoring

"The Math Lab is more than just a place for tutoring; it is a community dedicated to empowering students to reach their full potential in mathematics and beyond. I am grateful for the transformative impact it has had on my life and education. I struggled with math anxiety and a false belief that I wasn’t good at math. I started coming to the Math Lab for help and a quiet place to get all of my work done. It has good vibes and is very chill in there—exactly what I need. My grades began to soar, and I got A’s on all my tests with help from the Math Lab.  Now, as a tutor in the same lab where I once sought help, I am honored to pay it forward by assisting other students on their own academic journeys. You become like family, and we have a lot of fun in there (yes, even doing math)! We’re here to help you evolve into the highest version of yourself and take pride in creating a safe, relaxing space that is free of judgment." 

-Michael Ackeret, Former Student and Current Lab Tutor

Support Beyond the Classroom

When I started at Gulf Coast, I didn’t initially think I was going into healthcare. Using my Veteran Education benefits, I had my heart set on engineering, due to my love of science and math.

As I progressed through the program and classes. I realized this wasn’t what I wanted. When I discovered the Respiratory Care program, I knew at that moment this is what I really wanted to study.

All of the time and work I spent in the Math Lab forged my skills for not only math, but critical problem solving, communication, and comprehension of complex information. All things that helped me be a successful Respiratory Therapy Student! The experience I gained in the Math Lab has served me well beyond the classroom. If it was not for that place, those people, and their dedication, I would not be where I am today!
