Math Peer Mentor Program

The math department has established an informal peer mentoring system, where junior and senior mathematics majors provide advice and information about the major. They can answer questions about what it’s like to major in mathematics, about our classes, job and research opportunities, summer programs, and so on.

This year, we have five peer mentors: Alex Cohen, Sonali Durham, Diana Halikis, Catherine Lee, and Christopher Xue. They will each serve as a mentor to a group of prospective majors. Every week, one of the mentors will also hold walk-in office hours, where any student can come ask questions about the major or related topics.

If you are considering a math major, and would like to join one of the peer mentor groups, you can stop by the mentor’s walk-in session, or fill out a request at
https://yalesurvey.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_51M5TVDA8rb80jH .

Please note that the program is only meant for advice about the major, rather than help with content of any given course. For assistance with a particular class, we encourage you to make use of course-based resources, such as instructor office hours, TA’s, peer tutors, or ULA’s.
