New College of Florida students offer free math lessons and advice to people of all ages in Sarasota and Manatee counties to help them sharpen their math skills. The program is particularly popular among area middle school and high school students who need help with algebra, geometry and calculus.

The New College Math Clinic was created by New College Math Professor Eirini Poimenidou in the late 1990s. The clinic is open to anyone with math-related questions, seeking to overcome a math phobia, looking to return to school but in need of a math refresher or interested in discussing mathematical topics with fellow enthusiasts. Please note that tutors cannot provide tax preparation, tax advice or accounting services.
