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 those who need additional one-on-one help. It is very important to submit a request early to allow us time to coordinate individual tutoring. To qualify for individual tutoring you must:
1. Be receiving a C or less in the course.
2. Follow specific departmental guidelines (i.e. utilize office hours or drop-in tutoring if available).
To request individual tutoring, log into Starfish.
1. In the Starfish menu, click on the "Request Help" icon.
2. Select "I need individual tutoring help" from the drop-down menu.
3. Enter the course you need help with and a short description of what kind of help you might need.
You will be assigned a tutor as soon as your professor verifies that you meet the grade requirement (C or less). The process may take up to two weeks if there is not a tutor already hired and trained for the subject.
To remain in good standing with tutoring, you will need to attend at least one Learning Commons study skills workshop by the end of the term that you receive individual tutoring. If you cannot make it to a workshop, you can make an appointment with Reading/Writing Center or CORE to discuss topics of interest.
It is very important to submit a request early to allow us time to coordinate individual tutoring.
