CLINTON — Local Hamilton College students are serving as peer tutors in Hamilton’s Quantitative & Symbolic Reasoning Center.

They are: Genesis Duran of Clinton, a senior majoring in mathematics, is a graduate of Newtown High School; and Kailey Carlson of Clinton, a junior majoring in biochemistry, is a graduate of Mat-Su Career & Technical High School.

The mission of the QSR Center is to support students in the development of their academic skills, and to foster collaborative learning and intellectual growth.

Tutors are students who have been recommended by the departments for which they tutor. They have taken the courses they tutor and have been trained in tutoring techniques and interpersonal relations.

The QSR Center offers drop-in peer tutoring in introductory level courses containing a mathematics/quantitative component. Students may come to the center to work on homework, to work with a tutor, to review specific topics, or to use the resources of the computer lab and library.
