A number of resources are available to students seeking assistance with their chemistry courses. Students are strongly encouraged attend the office hours of the instructors for the course. Additional assistance may be sought from various tutoring services on campus, including the Greater University Tutoring Services (GUTS), University Housing Tutoring, and the College of Engineering Undergraduate Learning Center (ULC). Alpha Chi Sigma (AXE) is a co-ed professional chemistry fraternity that also offers tutoring, usually on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings in the Chemistry Building.
For students seeking more individualized tutoring, the Department of Chemistry maintains a list of private tutors available for hire. Although the private tutors included on the list below have been affiliated with the department in some way, we provide this list as a resource and cannot guarantee the quality of any individual private tutor.

The Chemistry Learning Center (CLC) supports students in introductory chemistry courses (103, 104, and 108) and in some sections of organic chemistry. They welcome as many students as possible but unfortunately do not have sufficient resources to support all students seeking help. The Center is funded to work with specific groups of students, such as first-generation low-income students, underrepresented students, students on academic probation, students with disabilities, students who have trouble understanding English, new transfer students, recently returning veterans, and students at-risk of failing the course. These are general guidelines and they consider each student seeking assistance on a case-by-case basis taking into account available program space. Program eligibility is usually determined by an interview with a staff member.
