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.

Tutoring Services

The QSR offers tutoring in a variety of modalities in an effort to best meet the needs of all Hamilton students. Students are encouraged to come for drop-in tutoring, join a facilitated group study, or schedule an individual tutoring appointment.

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.

Get to Know the QSR

The Center, located in 303 Christian A. Johnson Hall, offers a space where students can work, individually or collaboratively, with peer tutors on hand.

I took Calc II during my first semester at Hamilton and when I got discouraged, my professor saw the potential I had and recommended me to the QSR Center. In the blink of an eye, three years of working as a tutor at the center passed by. I got so close with the staff, it’s almost like a big family.
