Science Tutoring Lab

The Science Tutoring Lab will be closed during finals week, May 8-13 
We will re-open for Fall 2022 on August 29 2022

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 will be available in person and online starting Spring 2022.

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 Online Science Tutoring Lab

  • Have your textbook, notes, and other materials with you when you click in.
  • Find your class on the appropriate schedule and click on a tutor's zoom URL to meet with them.
  • Your tutor will ask for your Humboldt username.
  • Let your tutor know if you have limited wifi bandwidth; you can still get help with audio and screen sharing.

What to know

  • Don’t wait. Students who begin tutoring at the beginning of the semester tend to fare better than students who wait.
  • Come prepared: Bring your notes and text. Read the text and attempt the assignment before the session. When possible, bring questions. Better prepared students will get more out of their sessions.
