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, 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.
CLUE is operating person and virtually for fall quarter 2021. We will be following the guidelines UW has for COVID-19, and will update our website if anything changes.
Thank you for your patience with our staff as we operate in multiple modalities to support all students! Wait times may be longer than before but we will do our best to meet with all students.
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.
Bring your Husky card to Mary Gates Hall Commons to check in at the front desk. Husky card access is needed to get into the building.
As per UW policy, all students and CLUE staff will be required to wear masks while in Mary Gates Hall. If the wait time is long, we have virtual tutors available to help as well!
Drop-in is currently closed.
See below for hours.
Available for writing and math.
We are still finalizing our schedule so we will be adding additional subjects for scheduled appointments soon.
You are welcome to schedule appointments in advance but we ask that you only make 2 appointments per day, per subject. Once you make an appointment through Microsoft Bookings, you will receive an email confirmation with the appropriate Zoom links to meet with your tutor.
Discussion sessions and exam reviews are open! Click here to see the calendar of CLUE events. To attend these sessions, go to the calendar, click on the event you want to attend, join the event, and a zoom link will be provided to you.
If the event says "This event is currently closed", that simply means we haven't opened the zoom room yet, so check back closer to the start time of the event! We will open events 15-30 minutes prior to the start time.
These include courses outside of our main subject areas. Check to see if your course is listed! More will be added throughout the quarter.
Open for drop-in tutoring, both in-person and virtual, Sunday through Thursday, 7-11 p.m. (PT).
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. 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 cameras on so you know exactly who you are working with.
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.
