Successful students start strong, they find ways to stay strong, and they finish strong.

We know that our best students seek tutoring early while they are still doing well in courses rather than waiting until their grades are suffering.

UH is committed to empowering you toward a strong and successful semester through these free peer-tutoring class-support options.

LAUNCH is the UH Learning Center, offering one-on-one academic coaching, success workshops, and in-person peer tutoring. Tutoring is offered as a drop-in, first come first served basis – there is no appointment necessary.

Tutoring hours are different for each semester and are subject to change.

LAUNCH also has P.A.S.S. Sessions (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) in which a tutor has prepared extra practice, reviews, or activities to help you succeed in the class.
