This work reports on the results of research on modalities of mentoring in the area of social sciences at two Mexican universities and their relationship with the academic trajectories of their students. The analysis focuses on the need to identify influences of different mentoring forms on students' academic performance. The theoretical guidelines are linked to studies on tutoring and academic performance. The method was quantitative, with representative samples collected from students of 8 programs, of the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities of the Autonomous University of Hidalgo State (UAEH) and 3 programs of the Faculty of Pedagogy and Educational Innovation in the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC). The results provide significant data that show a positive correlation between tutoring and academic paths. It reflects the strengths and weaknesses in the emotional and academic aspects of tutorship and their impacts on student training in each program. We considered for the analysis, the type of tutoring in each program, teachers who developed it and the interaction that occurs in the process. It is concluded that the result of the study provides an important tool for the planning and development of educational strategies suited for the students of different programs of social sciences and humanities in improving their key skills for professional development.
