  • Tutors will work with students in the order they are in the queue.

We strongly encourage in-person tutoring for those who can make it to Grainger Engineering Library!  In-person sessions offer more opportunity to engage with tutors and other students in our space.

Junior in Chemical Engineering

CARE has provided me with an excellent opportunity to learn from engineers within UIUC. It makes college feel a lot smaller when you can work directly with a CARE tutor, rather than attempting to get help at TA office hours, which is generally not as individualized. CARE has had an immense impact on my learning experience, and I would highly encourage anyone to use the resources that CARE can provide. I have found it especially useful for Math, PHYS, and TAM. CARE made many difficult concepts very comprehensible and easy to apply.
