Science Lab Tutoring

The Science Tutoring Lab offers free drop-in peer tutoring for Humboldt students enrolled in chemistry, physics, biology, botany, zoology, and more.

The Science Tutoring Lab is a place to study chemistry, physics, biology, and other science classes. Students can come to study individually or in groups - no appointment necessary.

Science tutoring is available in person and online.

When tutoring hours are in-person, come to the Learning Center on the first floor of the library!

When tutoring hours are online, you can access them by going to the Virtual Front Desk 

How to Use the Science Tutoring Lab

  • Have your textbook, notes, and other materials with you when you come to tutoring 
  • Find your class on the appropriate schedule and see the times when a tutor is available
  • Check-in at the front desk when you arrive at the Learning Center
  • Meet with the tutor who tutors the class you want help with.

Role of the Tutors

Tutors will ask guiding questions and talk with you about your thought process. Remember, tutors aren't there to just give you answers, they want to teach students skills they can apply to their current assignment and future proficiency. Even if they aren't experts in your subject, they will look at your problem and try to help you figure it out. We can't guarantee we can help with every problem, but we will try!l!
