Tutoring

Tutoring offers academic support designed to advance your content mastery. The journey to mastery extends beyond the confines of lecture halls and textbooks. It’s the extra bit of understanding and effort that comes from seeking support. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, but a testament to your commitment to excellence!

Whether you’re navigating the complexities of calculus, striving to write an excellent technical paper, or deciphering the nuances of computer programming – this page is here to help you navigate all the resources available.

Remember that the faculty at the Colorado School of Mines are more than just instructors – they are your allies and cheerleaders! Check your course syllabi for faculty office hours to ask questions, discuss future aspirations, or research opportunities.
