Econ Tutoring Center

The University of Illinois offers tutoring and academic assistance services to students in many departments across campus. We encourage students to attend Instructor/TA office hours and study sessions 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 can best direct you to individualized campus resources for specific courses.

Econ Tutoring

Free service offered by the Economics 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.

Tutors assist with general questions and concepts for a variety of courses. No appointment necessary, just stop by during our open hours.

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

Any questions? Please email us at
