Tutoring in the Academic Success Center (ASC) is the centralized process of requesting and becoming a tutor at Iowa State University. While individual academic departments and colleges may also offer tutoring opportunities and services, Tutoring in the ASC is designed to be a one-stop-shop in a centralized location.

We are dedicated to providing quality tutoring for the majority of undergraduate courses. Small group tutoring, consisting of two to four students per group, is available each semester in most undergraduate courses. Each tutoring group meets two times a week. During the summer, tutoring occurs three times a week.

Tutees (currently enrolled ISU Undergraduate students):

  • Do you want to improve your grade and understand your course material better?
  • Did you receive a low test score or midterm grade?
  • Are you repeating a course?

If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions then Apply to Request a Tutor!  You will be included in a small group (4 students max) led by a tutor who did well in the specific course(s) you request and who wants to help you! Also, be sure to check out our resouces for current tutees.


Thinking about being a tutor?

  • Do you like to teach and help others?
  • Do you have courses you really liked and want to share that information with others?
  • Do you want to gain experience motivating and leading others?
  • Are you currently enrolled as an undergraduate student in credit courses?

If you answered "Yes" to these questions then Apply to Become a Tutor! For more information about our Tutoring Program, click on "Becoming a Tutor". You can also browse our resources for current tutors and see a list of our high demand courses.
