    The Tutoring Program

    The Tutoring Program matches Hamline students who feel under prepared for a certain course, or simply want to ensure they do their very best, with students who have excelled in that course. We are able to provide tutors for many subjects offered at Hamline and there is no cost to students for the service. Hamline's tutoring program is solely offered to Hamline students. 

    COVID-19 Notice

    For the remainder of the semester Tutoring Services will be offering virtual tutoring appointments. The list of tutors can be found here. The list is sorted by subject area, please reach out via email to set up the appointment. From your gmail account enter their full me in the “to” box, they should pop up. Make sure you use a clear subject line like “Looking for a Stats Tutor” or “Econ tutoring on Monday nights”. You are more than welcome to set up a recurring appointment or just set up meetings when you need them. Remember that our tutors are students too and are managing their own studies and other responsibilities, it might be hard to find someone the same day. Your tutor will send you a Google Calendar Meeting with a Google Meets link.

    The Tutors

    Tutors are Hamline students who have been recommended by faculty for their aptitude for the subject and their personal characteristics. They participate in regular training activities to learn how to provide well-informed, efficient service to students.

    Tutors are attracted to the position because of their love for the subject and enjoyment of sharing their knowledge with others. They also share the methods that have helped them succeed academically: careful reading, thorough note-taking, disciplined attention in lectures, and many subject-specific skills.

    How to Obtain the Most Out of the Tutoring Program

    • Use your tutor as just one of your academic resources.
    • While extremely helpful, your tutor cannot replace the assistance and insights a professor can provide during office hours, the benefits of the Writing and Communication Center and Academic Skills programming, or your own hard work.
    • Be aware that tutoring does not work as a "quick fix."
    • Come in early in the term and work regularly with your tutor.
    • Come prepared: bring your textbook, assignment sheets, class notes, and returned quizzes and exams; have the reading done and get as far as you can on your own; prepare questions in advance for your tutor.
    • Be respectful of your tutor's time: be on time for appointments; cancel or change appointments well in advance.

    If You Have Questions or Concerns

    Students at Hamline give extremely high evaluations of the tutoring program and praise the tutors who work here. However, if you have concerns or complaints about your tutor's performance, please call us at 651-523-2912 or email us at advising@hamline.edu.
