Tutoring and Other Individual Support
Below is a list of individual tutoring and support resources available to students across the University. Information on library resources, research collections, and additional learning opportunities are detailed on the Learning Resources page. We will add to this list as programs make arrangements to support student learning.
- The College Core Tutor Program provides peer-based tutoring in a range of classes focused on scientific and quantitative subjects. Tutors in the program assist students in chemistry, economics, mathematics, biology, computer science, statistics and physics introductory classes. Programming and support begin the second week of the quarter.
- The Writing Program offers tutoring and consultation for students enrolled in Core Humanities, Social Sciences, and Civilization courses; for details about appointments, services, and how best to prepare to work with a writing tutor, refer to the College Core Writing Tutor program information.
- The Social Sciences Writing Program will support students enrolled in Classics of Social and Political Thought and Power, Identity, and Resistance. Writing advisors embedded in these sequences will hold virtual Harper hours each week and students will be able to sign up for one-on-one meetings through College Scheduling. The program will also continue to hold topical workshops throughout the year and to support instructors by placing writing advisors in individual sections. First launched in 2019, the SOSC Core Writing Initiative supports students in their writing as they complete their SOSC Core requirements. Advisors work with students on aspects of rhetoric, structure, the use of evidence, and can suggest meaningful strategies for revision.
- The Quantitative Biosciences Center is a drop-in help center that provides resources and support for undergraduates as they complete quantitative, computer-based assignments and synthesize the incorporation of mathematics in the computational biology curriculum integrated into the courses required in the Biological Sciences major (BIOS 20170, BIOS 20175, BIOS 20188, BIOS 20189). The Center will offer virtual support and consultation through zoom five evenings a week, Sunday–Thursday, 7-9pm Central Time; details and information about how to access the center virtually are available on their website.
- English Language Institute programming offers a range of support.
- UChicagoGRAD offers individual advising and online webinars for graduate students and postdocs in a wide range of areas.
