Tutoring and Academic Support

You came to South Dakota Mines to be challenged, but now that challenge is staring you right in the face. College classes may seem significantly harder than what you encountered in high school; or maybe you sailed through your freshman year, and now a particular course section is giving you trouble. Fortunately, many resources are available for students who need tutoring, coaching or support to help them master concepts and coursework.

Start early . . . and start at the Student Success Center!

KNACK Online Tutoring

Hello South Dakota Mines students, faculty and staff:

With all the changes in our lives, adjusting to a “new normal”, and the start to a new semester, we have a different “look” to how we will be offering tutoring this Fall.  We have partnered with KNACK to provide a platform where our students can request tutoring help by scheduling appointments. The link to that platform is: https://www.joinknack.com/school/south-dakota-mines

Tutors through the Student Success Center at the South Dakota Mines are available to be booked for online sessions on the Knack platform. If you have any questions about working with these tutors or how to best navigate the Knack platform, please email thomas.mahon@sdsmt.edu or contact Knack support directly through the help center.
