Available to all Seattle campus undergraduates, the Center for Learning and Undergraduate Enrichment (CLUE) is the largest free tutoring program at the UW. We provide tutoring for Math, Chemistry, Physics, Writing, Biology, Economics, Statistics, and Computer Science & Engineering.
CLUE tutoring is more than a resource you can access when you're struggling in a class; it's a welcoming, inclusive space for students to connect, ask questions about various subjects, prepare for exams, and have support on homework. We know that the virtual space doesn't always feel supportive and it can be tough to want to engage online. But our peer tutors make tutoring fun with various tools to help you feel supported, all while having their zoom cameras on so you know exactly who you are working with.
Due to COVID-19, CLUE will be operating entirely virtually for fall, winter quarter, and spring quarter.
CLUE provides a space for all students to be included, challenged, and supported in their educational journey. We expect that tutors and students alike enter into this space with respect for one another and treat others with kindness.
Drop-in is currently closed.
See below for hours.
Available now! Physics & Writing (class assignments and applications)
Welcome back, Huskies!
We offer drop-in tutoring for Math, Physics, Chemistry, Econ, Bio, CSE, Stats and Writing. See our subject list below to check for days offered or view our monthly events calendar for more information.
When you enter drop-in tutoring, select Virtual Tutoring, and choose a subject area. Once a tutor is ready for you, they will call you and a Zoom link will be sent on that main tutoring page. If you haven't gotten called for awhile, it could be that we are busy so hang tight and we will get to you!
CLUE will be CLOSED on Sunday, 1/17 in observation of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Sunday 2/14 in observation of President's Day.
CLUE uses the Zoom platform for video conferencing and Google Docs or GoBoard to collaborate virtually. You must be logged in with your UW NetID and password to access CLUE.
Drop-in tutoring is offered for all our subjects (Chemistry, Math, Physics, and Writing) Sunday through Thursday from 7 p.m.–11 p.m. Drop-in tutoring is first-come, first-serve. You may wait five minutes or more depending on the availability of our tutors and how many students are waiting for help.
Appointment tutoring ensures that you meet with a tutor at a time you signed up for. There is no waiting time and you are guaranteed thirty minutes of one-on-one tutoring. We are currently only offering appointments for Physics and Writing from 12 p.m.–3 p.m.
Both options provide one-on-one tutoring for personalized support.
A personal computer or tablet with internet access and sound is necessary to access CLUE.
If you have any questions about accessing CLUE, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like help with an academic subject but need more time than is available via drop-in tutoring, consider getting a private tutor. We can send out an inquiry and see if anyone is available and then connect you with that tutor.
While we are virtual right now, you can watch this video to get a sense of what CLUE is like in person.
