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 cameras on so you know exactly who you are working with.
CLUE intends to be operating in person and virtually in the Fall 2021 quarter. We will be following the guidelines UW has for COVID-19, and will update our website if anything changes.
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.
To attend in person tutoring, bring your Husky card to Mary Gates Hall and check in with the Front Desk Manager (FDM). You will need your Husky card 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.
Drop-in is currently closed.

Available now for Writing, Physics, Chemistry, Math, Biology, Econ, and Stats!
Please limit your scheduling to 2 appointments per day, per subject. We are currently operating at reduced capactiy and would like to support all students seeking resources. At CLUE, we also want to encourage you to independently learn outside of your tutoring sessions. You are welcome to schedule appointments in advance but we ask that you only make 2 appointments per day, per subject. Thank you! If you have any questions about this, please email email@example.com.
Welcome back, Huskies!
CLUE is now closed for the Summer. We will see you again in the Fall!
CLUE is currently closed for the Summer quarter but will open again in person in Mary Gates Hall and virtually September 30th, 2021.
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.
