Learning Center Services

Get Connected with a Tutor:

  • Request tutoring services.
  • We will email you within 2 business days with tutor contact information.
    • You will receive three free tutoring sessions each semester thanks to a generous donation from the Clark and Christine Ivory Foundation. Information regarding how to use your free tutoring sessions will be included in the email with tutor contact information.
  • After using your three free tutoring sessions, you will need to purchase tutoring hours. Buy individual tutoring sessions online with a card or visit our office to use cash.
  • Use your order ID number on your email receipt as a proof of purchase when meeting with your tutor.

Please note:

  • We act as a referral service for our tutors. Students request tutoring services and are then responsible to schedule their own tutoring session.
  • After you have used your three free tutoring sessions, individual tutoring is available for $5 per hour.
  • If you are unable to pay for tutoring but would like to continue meeting with a Learning Center tutor, you are able to access our Ivory Holmes Tutoring Scholarship which will cover the cost of tutoring up to a certain amount each semester. To learn more about this opportunity, please inquire.
  • Tutoring is very flexible. Appointments may be set for any time of day at any public location that is convenient for the tutor and student.
  • We do not offer tutoring for every course, most of our tutoring is for lower-division, in-demand courses. Feel free to register or contact us to check if we offer tutoring for your course!

The Learning Center offers a free drop-in tutoring service that is available to all currently enrolled University of Utah students. The drop-in tutoring center is located in the Marriott Library Room 2130-N Knowledge Commons.

The Learning Center offers Supplemental Instruction (SI) for selected courses on campus. SI provides FREE organized study sessions which are open to any students in the course and are led by undergraduates who are selected and trained to be SI leaders.

The main goal of the SI program is to help students learn the course material and improve their course grade. In addition, we assist students in improving their study skills. We also provide students with an informal, personal, small group learning experience that helps them feel connected to other students and demonstrates the power of group study.

Check to see if your course is supported by Supplemental Instruction.
