Economics Department Tutoring

Department Tutoring services are geared towards helping students who are seeking additional support outside of lecture, section, and office hours. If you do not regularly attend lecture or section, tutoring services will be less effective. Our tutors aim to help students with specific questions on course concepts and problem sets by facilitating the learning process; they don’t just give out answers to assignments. Please bring all relevant course materials to the tutoring session. 

When should I use tutoring?

You should seek tutoring when you are struggling with a course concept or problem set and have specific questions to work through. 

How can I get the most out of tutoring?

  • Come prepared with your course notes and relevant course materials. 

  • Come prepared with specific questions early on.

What can I expect from the tutors?

  • They are on time and available for the duration of their stated office hours

  • They do their best to work through questions and refer to resources when necessary

  • To not always have ALL of the answers.

​Additional Questions? 

Please contact the Head GSI at headgsi@econ.berkeley.edu or Michelle Fong at fong.michelle@berkeley.edu.
