Peer Tutoring

The Learning Assistance Center offers both In-Person and Online Tutoring for all undergraduate UC students at our office in 2441 French Hall West. Sessions are one-on-one with a subject-specific tutor to answer your questions. Our dedicated tutors participate in ongoing training to equip them with strategies to support extended classroom learning. Tutoring is free of charge, and students may register using the links at the top of this page.

The LAC offers tutoring in more than 400 courses including subjects such as math, science, languages, business, and writing. If you notice your desired course is not offered, please let us know.

Distance Learning students or those enrolled in online courses are encouraged to visit our Learning Resources. This page provides valuable resources for academic success, ideal for students who cannot access  our campus-based services. Make sure to check out our new installments of Math Minute for video tutorials in math courses. New videos are added regularly.
