• Tutoring

    Tutoring Services offers free peer tutoring in accounting, chemistry, math, and many other subjects. We welcome all Hamline undergraduate students—whether they feel underprepared for a course or want to build on the success they are already having—to join us for drop-in group tutoring or appointment-based one-on-one tutoring.

    COVID-19 NOTICE

    Tutoring Services for spring 2021 will be a mix of virtual and in-person tutoring. Drop-in tutoring will continue virtually via Google Meet. Click the button below to access our current schedule. Click the subject you want help with, and then click the blue "Join with Google Meet" button to enter the small group tutoring session.

    Drop-in Tutoring Schedule

    If you would like to make a one-on-one tutoring appointment, use the button below to see our list of available tutors. The list is sorted by whether the tutors are available for in-person or virtual tutoring, then by subject. Email whomever you want to work with. Ensure the subject line is clear, such as "Looking for a stats 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 set up meetings only when you need them.

    At this time, we ask that you request in-person tutoring only if you do not have reliable access to virtual tutoring.

    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 the tutoring program

    • Use your tutor as just one of your academic resources.
    • While extremely helpful, 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."
    • Come 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, and cancel or change appointments well in advance.
