Chemistry and Physics tutoring is also available on Saturdays between 11:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Mookini Library on the first floor.
The Science Center offers free, walk-in tutoring for primarily lower division (100- and 200-level) biology, chemistry, marine science, physics, and astronomy courses. (Some tutors may be able to assist with select upper-division courses.)
There are also eight computers available for students to work on their course-related programs with or without a tutor's assistance.
Science tutors are UH Hilo students selected for their excellence in different science disciplines, good inter-personal skills, and who are trained to facilitate mastery of science concepts and skills.
The UH Hilo Student Conduct Code is in effect throughout the campus, including all Kilohana Centers and Kilohana sponsored events.
