Helping Students Become Independent Learners

The University of Minnesota Crookston's Tutoring Center is dedicated to fostering independent learning among students. Through tutoring, the Student Success Center (SSC) empowers students to take charge of their academic journey by actively engaging with course material through weekly tutoring sessions.

Our goal at the SSC is to ensure that students have access to tutoring support for all lower-division (1xxx and 2xxx) courses, with additional assistance available for upper-division courses whenever possible. To request a tutor, students simply need to click the "Request a Tutor" button. For on-campus students, tutoring sessions take place in Owen Hall 270, while online students can connect with tutors via Zoom.

Should a requested course lack available tutors, students are encouraged to reach out to We will collaborate with faculty to locate a suitable tutor for the course.

Once paired with a peer tutor, students typically meet regularly throughout the semester for sessions lasting 50 minutes to one hour. To maximize the benefits of these sessions, students are encouraged to come prepared with questions and topics they've encountered while working through course material.
