Tutoring at IWU
Tutoring is for ALL students. At IWU, a plethora of tutors are available to support
all aspects of learning.
Subject Peer Tutors
Whether you’re seeking to improve your test scores, or simply to gain a deeper understanding
of course material, a peer tutor can help. Many departments offer subject-specific tutoring one-on-one or in recurring small
group settings. To find a tutor, check your course syllabus or connect with your professor.
The Writing Center
Located on the first floor of The Ames Library, The Writing Center helps students with all the stages of the writing process, from those first rough
ideas through prewriting, collecting supporting material, drafting, and final editing
and proofreading. Writing Center tutors are available to help you to improve your
writing for courses in all subjects, as well as for co-curricular and pro-professional
projects. There are also English Language Learner tutors and Speech Tutors available through The Writing Center.
