A cross-sectional descriptive survey was used for the study with questionnaires being the main tools to collect the data. The analysis suggests that Mathematics tutors ICT competency level is low, but they still do their best. The findings also indicted that tutors seldom use the appropriate pedagogy in relation to the use of ICT in teaching Mathematics.

Finally, it was found that tutors are challenged with a lot of ICT barriers that include absence of training opportunities and infrastructure when using ICT in the teaching and learning of Mathematics in the College.
