Tutoring Services

Center for Academic Success and Achievement

Tutoring Services offers free peer tutoring in accounting, chemistry, math, and many other subjects. We welcome all Hamline undergraduate students—whether you feel underprepared for a course or want to build on the success you are already having—join us for one-on-one appointments. Our tutors are eager to help you with homework, exam preparation, and other academic skills. 

Fall 2022 COVID-19 notice

In fall 2022, Tutoring Services will offer in-person and online tutoring by appointment. Students who attend in-person tutoring are asked to wear a mask. 

Online and in-person tutoring appointments

If you would like to make a one-on-one tutoring appointment, use the button below to see our list of available tutors. Email whomever you want to work with. Ensure the subject line is clear, such as "Looking for a chemistry tutor" or "Econ tutoring on Monday nights." Please allow tutors up to 48 hours to respond to your request. You are welcome to set up recurring appointments or meet only when you need a tutor. Please bring your Hamline ID card to in-person meetings.

One-on-one appointments will return in the fall. 

Tutors

Tutors are Hamline students who have been recommended by faculty for their knowledge of the subject. They participate in regular training activities to learn how to provide well-informed, efficient tutoring. Their goal is to share with you the methods that have helped them succeed academically: careful reading, thorough note-taking, disciplined attention in lectures, and many subject-specific skills.

How to get the most out of tutoring

  • Use your tutor as just one of your academic resources. Your tutor cannot replace insights a professor can provide during office hours, the benefits of the Writing and Communication Center and CASA’s other academic resources, or your own hard work.
  • Be aware that tutoring does not work as a “quick fix” and that your tutor will not complete your work for you.
  • Come early in the term and consider working regularly with a tutor.
  • Come prepared. Bring your textbook, assignment sheets, class notes, returned quizzes and exams, and any other materials you might need. Try to finish all assigned readings and write down questions for your tutor.
  • Respect your tutor’s time by being punctual or canceling appointments in advance.
