Through the Quantitative Reasoning Center (QRC), Earlham offers tutoring, mentoring and coaching for free to all students in pursuit of academic excellence. Our goal is to help you become a better learner through engagement with our trained peer tutors.
Group tutoring is available for high demand classes, taught by students who have previously mastered the curriculum. Group tutoring sessions will occur in the Tutoring Center according to the group schedule.
For classes not covered by group tutoring, one-on-one tutoring may be an option to consider. The QRC will pair you with another student, scheduled at your convenience. With this option you will received one-on-one help to master your courses.
Group tutoring sessions
The QRC provides group tutoring sessions for various math and science courses taken by many first-year students. Students enrolled in courses with group tutoring sessions are notified about such tutoring by the QRC and their professors.
These sessions are held at the Center for Science and Technology (CST). The tutors are trained undergraduate students who have demonstrated mastery in the subject they tutor. Tutors are available Sunday-Thursday; the daily hours vary. Specific subject and tutor availability are posted online, at CST and in applicable syllabi.
Students may request one-on-one tutors for courses not supported by group tutoring sessions or the Writing Center. Students may request tutoring for up to two hours per course each week. The student and tutor determine the tutoring schedule.
Students seeking a one-on-one tutor should submit a request using our online form. The QRC staff matches students to a tutor and provides all parties with the information needed to schedule their first tutoring session. The QRC also informs professors about the match.
Study skills enhancement
Students can find help improving their study skills through the QRC as well. If you’re struggling to find time to make school work a priority or looking for tips and tricks to enhance your study abilities, consider requesting a peer guide to show you the way. Your time management peer guide will help you get (and stay) on track moving forward.
