Academic Support

IU has resources you can use to succeed in your classes. Explore them below and talk to your professors and academic advisors to make sure you're using all of the resources that are right for you.

The Academic Support Centers (ASC) in the Briscoe, Forest, and Teter Residences offer free services Sunday-Thursday evenings during the regular semester - tutoring, workshops, study groups, and more. See ASC Regular Services.
The Math Learning Center in Swain Hall East provides a group tutoring experience on a walk-in basis; no appointment is necessary. Students who wish to have a one-on-one tutoring experience should consider hiring a private tutor, see Tutor List.

Writing Tutorial Services (WTS), located in the Wells Library Information Commons, provides individual tutoring and helps student writers at any phase of the writing process--from brainstorming to outlining, revising to polishing the final draft.

Psi Chi maintains a list of students who've volunteered to serve as free tutors for psychology & neuroscience classes.

Tips: Time with a tutor is not a substitute for attending class and studying an adequate amount of time on your own. Go talk to your professor or the teaching assistant to assess whether the work you're doing on your own and/or with your tutor is likely to help.

Ask questions of any potential tutor, including:

  • What do you think is the best way to study for this class?
  • What will we do during tutoring sessions? What should I do to prepare?
  • How often do you suggest we meet? What days & times are you available to meet?
  • How many students have you tutored for this course in the past? Can you provide me with the name & email of at least one student you've tutored for this course?

Check out Psi Chi Tutoring Services to request a tutor or to offer to serve as a tutor. Email Psi Chi and tell them:

  • Your name and your IU email address
  • The number of the PBS course you'd like help with (P101 or P155 or K300 or P346 or...)
  • The name of your instructor
