Tutoring

Burnham Hall Tutoring Center

Qualified Honors College students are available to help you in almost every subject. 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, Sept 10, 2018 for the Fall 2018 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 and out 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 offered between the hours of 9am and 4pm on weekdays, though there may be gaps in coverage due to the student tutor schedules. Please refer to the detailed schedule below for specific hours for the semester.

There will also be extended evening hours offered on Thursdays during the Fall 2018 semester, from 4-7pm.

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
