Building a Strong Knowledge Base

Dear Parents and High School Teachers,

Encourage One-on-One Tutoring for Math, Chemistry, and Physics: Meet Hamline STEM Start Tutoring- A Free Academic Service!

As winter arrives, it’s time to reflect on our academic journey at Hamline STEM Start. We understand the vital role of strong foundations in math, chemistry, and physics for high school students. This month, we want to highlight the advantages of personalized, one-on-one tutoring for your students in these crucial subjects.

Why Choose One-on-One Tutoring?

Building a Strong Knowledge Base

Success in STEM subjects hinges on a strong knowledge base. Similar to a carpenter using a wide array of tools to finish a project, your STEM student may need to utilize a number of techniques and concepts to solve a problem or master a subject. By gaining the correct tools, your STEM student can solve problems more readily and with greater confidence.

Additionally, since the topics of STEM are intertwined–for example, with chemistry involving physics and physics involving math–building a strong knowledge base becomes all the more crucial. By building this strong base, your student is able to strengthen connections between the subjects and borrow from one subject to use towards another, leading to a final repository that is more than the sum of its parts. 

What is the best way to gain this strong knowledge base? Tutors can help students bridge knowledge gaps and reinforce fundamental concepts, ensuring they are well-prepared for advanced coursework. At Hamline STEM Start, our tutors are able to assess the tools your student may be lacking in their knowledge base. Additionally, our tutors can show your students the ways to employ the tools they already have in new and useful ways.

Hamline STEM Start is provided free of charge for your students. If you are interested in using this resource, please email or visit We look forward to assisting your classroom efforts by building a strong knowledge base with your students!
