Augustana offers different types of tutoring that include departmental drop-in tutoring, individual subject tutoring, and Reading/Writing Center tutoring.
Departmental drop-in tutoring
Drop-in tutoring is free to all students. All students are encouraged to use drop-in tutoring whether they're getting a B in the class and hoping to raise it to an A, or if hoping to pass a course. We interview, hire and train qualified peer tutors to staff drop-in tutoring programs. A schedule of all the available drop-in tutoring programs on campus is posted every term.

Individual tutoring is offered for other courses for which there is no drop-in tutoring or for those who will need additional one-on-one attention. In order to qualify for individual tutoring, students must:
1. Be receiving a C or less in the course
2. Attend at least one study skills workshop
3. Follow specific departmental guidelines (i.e. utilize office hours or drop-in tutoring if available)
• To request individual tutoring, students must log into Starfish.
On the home screen, click on the "Request Help" icon.
Select "I need individual tutoring help" from the drop-down menu.
Yen Dao, director of student success services, will contact students via email to coordinate tutoring.
This process may take up to two weeks if there is not a tutor already hired and trained for that subject. We will try our best to accommodate individual tutoring requests.
It is very important to submit a request early to allow us time to coordinate individual tutoring.
Please direct all departmental drop-in and individual tutoring questions to Yen Dao, director of student success services, 309-794-8016.
