Econ Tutoring Center

The Department of Economics and different units across the University offer tutoring and academic assistance services to students. We encourage students to attend instructor and TA office hours and study sessions starting early in the semester to get the most out of the content - even if you do not feel behind, it is a great way to connect to the material and go beyond what is in the classroom. If you are having trouble, please meet with an advisor as soon as possible so we are able to best direct you to individualized campus resources for specific courses.

Econ Tutoring

Free service offered by the Department for all students during the fall and spring semesters, starting the third week of classes. Tutors are advanced-level economics undergraduate students who meet high academic and tutoring standards. Students may stop by anytime the Tutoring Center is open (see schedule below). Questions may be sent to econug@illinois.edu.

Tutors assist with general questions and concepts for a variety of courses. You do not need to make an appointment, just stop by for assistance during our open hours.

Specific questions about homework or tests should be directed towards your TA or Instructor during office hours.
