Tutoring

Burnham Hall Tutoring Center

Qualified Honors College students are available to help you in many subjects. The tutoring schedule lists both the classes and the times particular tutors are available to tutor those classes. That schedule is posted here at the beginning of every semester, and tutoring in the Burnham Hall Tutoring Center (BH 220) begins on Monday, January 27, 2020 for the Spring 2020 semester. You do not need an appointment to see a tutor; the service is free and available to every UIC student. Students visiting the Burnham Hall Tutoring Center are asked to sign in when using the tutoring services, in order for the Honors College to track usage of this service.

Location and Hours

The Burnham Hall Tutoring Center is located on the second floor of Burnham Hall in Room 220.

Tutoring is typically offered during business hours throughout the week (excluding weekends), with evening hours potentially offered at times based on tutor availability. Please refer to the detailed schedule below for specific hours for the semester.

Note: There will be no tutoring during Thanksgiving Break, Spring Break, or during finals week, so our students may concentrate on their exams.

For questions on the program, contact the Honors College tutoring coordinator: Nikki Gottleib
