Tutoring & Support Services

Personal Course Tutors

Students who need help outside of class should first attend instructor and TA office hours and any review sessions offered for their particular course. Free tutoring is also available for ECON 101 and 201 through Duke's Peer Tutoring program.

If your needs extend beyond the above options, the EcoTeach Center can also provide a list of undergraduate and graduate students willing to tutor students in core economics courses (ECON 101, 104, 201, 204, 205, and 210). Students seeking a tutor for these courses should send their query to the undergraduate program assistant (requests for the tutoring list must be sent from a valid Duke email address). It is the responsibility of the student to make all arrangements, including hourly rate and payments, with the tutor. For reference: Student tutors typically receive $15 - 25/hour, but set their own hourly rate.  EcoTeach does not sponsor or pay for individual tutoring.

Econ Learning Center

Launching on February 21, 2022, the Economics Learning Center is a drop in location for students to receive tutoring support for Econ 104, Econ, Econ 201, Econ 205, and Econ 210. For Fall 2022, the Learning Center will be open Mondays through Fridays from 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm and located in RM 107 Social Sciences Building. The Teaching Fellows staffing the Learning Center are experienced undergraduates. No appointment is necessary, and students can receive support for either Econ 104, Econ 201, Econ 205, and Econ 210 during these hours. See the current weekly schedule.

Although support is presently limited to Econ 104, Econ 201, Econ 205, and Econ 210, our goal is to expand to other core economics classes in future semesters.

PLEASE NOTE: The Economics Learning Center will not be staffed during Fall break (10/7-10/11), but will resume normal hours on Wednesday, October 12.

If you have questions, please contact dus_asst@econ.duke.edu.

Research Support Tutors

The EcoTeach Center will fund one-on-one tutoring in various statistical and research support software (i.e. STATA, E-views, Mathematica, LaTeX, SPSS, and SAS) for undergraduates pursuing research as part of the Honors Program. To request tutoring, send an email to ecoteach@econ.duke.edu.
