Tutoring

Kilohana emphasizes support for historically challenging classes (those “killer” classes that many students find especially challenging) and gateway courses (those that are essential for multiple majors), and offers tutoring for a wide range of subjects. 

Kilohana's primary mission involves tutors helping students to become independent and self-motivated learners who will eventually be able to do their work without a tutor by their side.

The UH Hilo Student Conduct Code is in effect at all times in all Kilohana Centers and Kilohana sponsored events.

Schedules

All tutoring is free and operates on a walk-in (first-come, first-served) basis; click on the subject below for a detailed schedule.

In the spring and fall semesters, tutoring begins the second week of the semester and ends the last week of instruction. Please note that tutoring is not available during final exam week (so our student employees can study for their final exams) and regularly scheduled school holidays.

If funds and staffing permit, Summer tutoring begins on the first day of classes.
