Kilohana emphasizes support for historically challenging classes (those 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.

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 fall and spring semesters, tutoring begins the second week of the semester and ends on the last day of instruction for the semester. Tutoring during final exam week is available on an abbreviated schedule to allow our student staff to prepare and study for their final exams.

All Kilohana Centers are closed for regularly scheduled school holidays and breaks during and between semesters.

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