Student Learning Hub

Your one-stop-shop for free, flexible & online student learning supports & resources

The Student Learning Hub is for everyone and our services are free. We invite UBCO students from all disciplines and year levels to access a range of supports from peers and professionals that include tutoring in math, sciences, languages, and writing, as well as help with study skills and learning strategies. Visit us early and often to build the skills, strategies, and behaviours that are essential to become a confident and independent learner.

Online office hours: Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Location: LIB 237 (Please note: our physical space is closed till further notice)

We want to hear from you!

Did you have a great experience? Support not available when you need it?

Whatever the case, let us know! We welcome all feedback about our tutoring services. To share, please email learning.hub@ubc.ca or submit your feedback anonymously.

We can’t do what we do without great student staff. If you want to work in the Hub you should be in the second, third, or fourth year of an undergraduate degree program. Interested applicants must demonstrate:

  • A high level of academic achievement, combined with excellent writing and communication skills
  • The ability to clearly and concisely explain concepts to their peers
  • Excellent communication skills and a friendly and positive attitude
  • A desire to provide guidance and help others learn

Tutoring is a supplement to teaching and provides expertise, experience, and encouragement, rather than simply providing answers. Although we generally recruit staff in early spring via the UBC Okanagan Job Board, you are welcome to connect with us to inquire at any time. Check the UBCO Job Board regularly to view any current postings.

Questions? Contact us at learning.hub@ubc.ca

At this time, the Student Learning Hub does not offer any private tutoring services.

We encourage you to make use of the free support provided to you through the Student Learning Hub. For those wishing to engage in course material outside of the classroom we encourage you to check out our online resources.

For those looking for private tutors for hire, you can visit the UBCSUO tutor registry.

Please note that UBC, the UBCSUO, and the Student Learning Hub do not provide any screening or formal interview process for these tutors.  It is strongly recommended to ask for sample work, and/or check references prior to working with the tutor.
