    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.

    Our Spring 2019 tutoring schedule can be found here.

    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.

    Connecting with a Tutor

    • Visit the Center for Academic Success and Achievement (CASA) front desk in the lower level of Bush Library to check current offerings.
    • For drop-in tutoring, find your tutor in the lower level of Bush Library (in the area outside of room 10). For appointment tutoring, email your tutor to arrange a time to work together. Unless special computer or lab equipment is required, you will meet in the CASA area in the lower level of Bush Library. If you find you cannot match schedules, please contact Lisa Nordeen at 651-523-2912.
    • Near the end of the semester, evaluations will be sent out to student who utilized tutoring.

    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.
