Since its opening in 1994, the Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning Center (QSR) has offered peer tutoring for the quantitative aspects of all courses across the curriculum. The center offers tutoring in a variety of modalities in an effort to best meet the needs of all Hamilton students. Students are welcome to come for drop-in tutoring, join a facilitated group study, or schedule an individual tutoring appointment.

Tutoring Services

The QSR Center primarily offers drop-in tutoring for students enrolled in introductory courses in chemistry, physics, mathematics, and economics. Additionally, the QSR Center offers one-on-one and small group tutoring for many of the QSR classes offered at Hamilton College, and one-on-one tutoring for statistical support for theses, research, and projects.

Staff & Resources

The Center offers a space where students can work, individually or collaboratively, with peer tutors on hand. There are also computers (Macs & PCs) for students to work on assignments.

Course Support

The QSR Center assists faculty members by providing support for students outside of the classroom, and office hours and workshops designed to accompany specific courses. Some students may be referred to the center by their professors. Some professors may ask an entire class to come to the center to review skills needed for success in the course.
