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 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.
In-person tutoring will return Fall quarter 2022.
As per UW policy, wearing a well-fitted high-quality mask is highly encouraged while in Mary Gates Hall.
Drop-in is currently closed.
See below for hours.
Discussion sessions and exam reviews will return Fall quarter 2022. 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.
Summer quarter we offer support for the following subjects every day we are open: Math, Physics, Writing, CSE and Statistics. Statistics has limited hours and is only open 10am-12pm PST.
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 email@example.com.
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.
